Writer's Workshops

Writer's Workshop

Referencing and citing are important components of academic writing. Stylistics, in-text citation and references are just some of the aspects that are regulated by referencing and citation style.  Failure to reference your work can result in allegations of plagiarism or academic dishonesty.

UWI-ROYTEC uses two formal methods of referencing academic work: The American Psychological Association (APA) citation style and the Modern Language Association (MLA) style.

MLA: The MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities. Students are encouraged to attend this session, as this is the approved method for written presentations at UWI-ROYTEC.

APA: The APA (American Psychological Association) Referencing is the approved style for written presentations for all the University of New Brunswick programmes (BBA, B.Ed. and M.Ed). Students are encouraged to attend this session, as all UNB academic work must be referenced using the APA Style.

Students are encouraged to attend the Writer's Workshops as it offers essential academic referencing guidelines.
