How to Write up Your Research

You may find this WHSL guide to research in the biomedical sciences helpful. Academic writing style is different to the style you use in business reports, or casual correspondence. You need to use formal language and spelling (no mobile phone text words!); be precise and very specific; use impersonal language; and to make use of active verbs, such as "attends" or "states" or "refutes". For more information, consult the excellent material on this subject from Deakin University, Australia.

Editing and proofreading your work is equally important before submitting your research report for examination.
