Summarising, paraphrasing and quoting for academic purposes

: Summarising, paraphrasing and quoting are essential academic writing skills. They are key to a good academic writing style, creating a sound academic argument and demonstrating your understanding of the material. They are also crucial to reading and note making for academic purposes, and to integrating your material into your writing. This workshop will identify the differences between summarising, paraphrasing and quoting, why these academic writing skills are important, when to summarise, paraphrase or quote and how to summarise, paraphrase and quote.

To book a place on this workshop see the current Study Skills timetable or the MyBirkbeck academic development workshops.
