How to Work Effectively with Sources in Your Writing – Online Synchronous Workshop

October 18 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm EDT

This workshop is taught by Dr. Peter Grav.

Almost all graduate research and writing is built upon work that has come before, and we use the literature for a myriad of reasons including to contextualize our research, provide support for our ideas and communicate our bona fides in our respective disciplines.  Yet effectively incorporating the research of others into new work often presents significant challenges to academic writers. In this workshop, we’ll look at how to best integrate the ideas and research outcomes of others into your writing. Topics covered will include levels of citation, the mechanics of integrating the words and / results of others into your work, plagiarism and how to avoid it, strategies for effective paraphrasing and how our use of sources plays out differently in different fields.  

This is the third of 5 workshops in the Getting Through Graduate Work workshop series. 

This workshop will be offered live online and will not be recorded. Please register to receive a link to join the workshop at the scheduled time.
