This website was created to support students in their academic writing. Here you will find practical advice on the writing process, how to manage sources and references, and how to publish your thesis.
If you are not used to writing academic texts, we suggest that you go through all parts of the website, and as you become more experienced return for more specific advice. Keep in mind that you may find other useful resources for writing on your university’s website. University libraries’ websites often have good resources for reference writing and reference management, as well as the information sources you need to write your text.
This guide goes beyond basic grammar and style points. ItвЂ™s not traditional in format or content. We break a number of grammar rules for clarity, practicality, or preference.
We invite you to use and adapt this style guide as you see fit. ItвЂ™s completely public and available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International license. All we ask is that you credit Mailchimp.
If you are interested in improving your writing, you are welcome to take an optional course at the Division for Language and Communication (see the Student Portal for information) or book a time at the Chalmers Writing Centre.
Welcome to Chalmers Writing Guide! This guide provides general writing tips to guide and help with your writing but focuses particularly on writing a Master thesis . However, many of the tips given can be used for other kinds of report writing as well.
These guides are the result of a joint effort of the [email protected] project and the Colorado State University Writing Center. Development of these guides began in 1993, when the original Online Writing Center was developed for campus use at Colorado State University. Several guides were developed in Asymmetrix Multimedia Toolbook and then migrated to the web in 1996. Over the years, additional guides were developed and revised, reflecting the efforts of many writers and writing teachers. We thank them for their generosity. You can learn who developed a particular guide by clicking on the “contributors” link in that guide.
The following Writing Guides are available. To view guides, click on the list of catgories on the list below. You may view or hide descriptions of the guides.
