Developing academic integrity is closely connected to the development of the academic writing skills. In this workshop, the different genres of academic writing as well as the characteristics of writing styles that are used in academia will be discussed. Special focus will be put on the purpose and the function of references in academic texts and on the areas that many students perceive as gray spots of referencing. Through different exercises, the participants will get a better understanding of the concept of referencing and the knowledge on how to avoid plagiarism.
