Help with your writing
The library offers several services that help you to get started and take care of important elements in assignment writing.
The most used citation style at UiS is American Psychological Association (APA). There are several useful software that can keep track of your sources and help you insert citations and bibliography in your preferred citation style. The library offers classes in Zotero and Endnote. These are good tools, but they will not do all the work for you. You must always check your sources to make sure they are correct before using them.
Research and publishing
The library can help you with many steps of the publishing process. We can assist you with open access, choosing the right journal, and publishing on UiS Publishing Platforms.
