Ten Reasons Why Operating Department Practitioners and Theatre Nurses Might Not Want to Quote or Cite from this Article

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Academic writing can fill pre- and post-registration students with fear and dread. Students often construct written work around re-worded passages from their sources. This results in poor quality work, low marks and frustration. The aim of this article is to inform students embarking on courses in higher education about what academic writing is – and equally importantly what it is not.
