The Academic Phrasebank is a general resource for academic writers. It aims to provide you with examples of some of the phraseological "nuts and bolts" of writing organised under the headings to the left. It was designed primarily with international students whose first language is not English in mind. However, if you are a native speaker writer, you may still find parts of the material helpful.
The phrases can be used simply to assist you in thinking about your writing, or they can be used in your own work where this is appropriate. In most cases a certain amount of creativity will be necessary when you do this. It is also possible to transfer some of the words used in particular phrases to others. The phrases are content neutral and generic in nature; in using them, therefore, you are not stealing other people's ideas and this does not constitute plagiarism.

From Stephen Downs, OLDaily June 14, 2011
I had a quick run through easyBib this morning and have favorable things to say. It does a lot of what I wanted gRSShopper to do, using forms to make submissions of bibliographical entries a lot easier, but goes well beyond that, looking up what's needed from various sources on the web. After all (the thinking must go) if the data exists in a database somewhere out there on the web, why should anyone type it in again? Of course, on the other hand, the data out there on the web should be good the data properly entered - this means citing On Liberty as being authored by John Stuart Mill, and not Mill plus a bunch of co-authors. Also, I didn't appreciate being blasted with an audio ad while I was trying to record something. So - great design, poor execution.

Innovative language arts teachers find that adapting writing instruction to technology can enhance engagement without sacrificing the fundamentals.
By Liana Heitin
The nature of writing has shifted in recent years. There are very few—if any—jobs these days for which employees produce lengthy handwritten reports. News stories are an integration of words, images, audio, and website links. College applications are all online, and some schools are beginning to accept videos in place of essays. A friendly letter is more likely composed on a smartphone than on stationary.
So why does writing in school still so often involve a pen, paper, and a hardbound print dictionary?
“Schools are in catch-up mode,” says Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, of the National Writing Project. Outside of their classes, students most often encounter digital writing—that is, writing created or read on a computer or other Internet-connected device, as defined in the book Eidman-Aadahl co-authored.
