Good writing is essential for a master’s level student. In CEOMPH, we will be asking you to demonstrate different writing styles. However, a key is to always use good grammar, spelling and good sentence construction. In certain assignments, you will need to use proper reference formats. For those of you who need a review, here are some online sources. We keep a copy of grammar rules in the office so that we can help you improve your writing!
As a reminder, each of the universities has a writing lab if you want to enhance your writing skills: go to the “university links” page in the CEOMPH web site.
A suggestion for some of you--if you want to write proper scientific papers or if you would like to publish papers in journals--is to use software that manages your references. Please see the examples below to make a decision on which one to use. Note that there are other software platforms that do the same functions, but these are what faculty at NEOMED use:
Zotero - A free tool available for download as a desktop program that allows users to help store, cite, and share references! Zotero as a desktop product connects to both Safari and Chrome, and has a plug-in to Microsoft Word so you can Cite While You Write!
EndNote Basic - FREE web-based citation management tool with 20+ citation styles available. A fuller version with 5000+ styles is available to all NEOMED-affiliated patrons through our ISI Web of Knowledge subscription. Users with personal EndNote Accounts also have access to EndNote Web.
EndNote - A paid desktop program to collect, manage, and cite resources.
Want to learn more about how to use these tools? Explore our Citation Management Guide. It provides a general overview of different tools, along with step-by-step tutorials on how to use them.
Check with your university librarians if you have questions on using these links and using the software!
