Guidelines for written papers at VID
In VID’s Guidelines for writing academic papers you will find information about formal requirements, how to cite sources, and how to organize your references in a bibliography.
Academic integrity in writing a paper means being clear about which reflections are your own and which are drawn from the works of others. Plagiarism involves presenting the results, ideas or words of others as if they were your own. By being conscientious about referencing correctly, you can avoid suspicion of plagiarism. It is important to know about research ethics, citation rules, conditions concerning copyright, research methods and academic writing.
In the last few years there have unfortunately been several instances of fraud, cheating and plagiarism in education and research. It is therefore very important that both students and faculty sharpen their ethical awareness. Read more about VID’s aims for academic integrity (In Norwegian only).
