Supporting scientific writing during program
Developing writing skills during the degree programs
It is described in the chapter Writing is a skill that students need training in writing and information acquisition. They also need support.
How do we ensure this during the study programs?
It is good to remember that new students start not only in a candidate program but also on other degree levels. If there are writing assignments and Turnitin submission boxes in the beginning of every degree program, we can ensure that all students get familiar with criteria of writing and the code of academic integrity. It is also valuable experience about writing before starting a thesis.
