Academic writing at university is different to the assignments and other projects that you may have written before. You’ll be expected to know how to quote, paraphrase and expand on arguments that you have researched in the literature as well as present your own thoughts and conclusions. Without meaning to, it can be very easy to present your writing in such a way that might initiate academic conduct investigations. Without being aware of the pitfalls, it can be very easy to make such a mistake.
