Guidelines for term papers

Editorial guidelines for scientific papers vary across different scientific paradigms and publication venues (even within linguistics). An essential part of professionalizing writing skills is to make the students aware of the variation and reasoning of these requirements, as well as to offer opportunities to implementing them in the context of term papers and theses.

Editorial and content guidelines for term papers and theses should be discussed with the respective instructors. In addition, the seminar provides a generic set of guidelines for the organization of written papers and thesis papers that offers guidance on how to write academic texts. The guidelines cover such text and page formatting, citation style, and general advice on structuring content. The guidelines can be implemented with all common office packages or typesetting programs such as LaTeX.
