Write & cite
The library provides instruction and consultation in academic writing via Academic Writing Support. We can also guide you in understanding different reference styles, find useful resources for reference management, and understand copyright issues.
Here you will find advice on the writing process, understanding and improving the structure of an academic text, tips for improving the style and grammar of your writing, using sources effectively, and much more. Academic Writing Support helps you improve your writing skills, no matter your level or experience.
Writing references (APA & Vancouver)
At KI, APA and Vancouver are the most common reference styles. Here you will find more information and guides to help you write your references correctly.
Copyright applies to all works younger than 70. If you are a university student or teacher, however, certain exceptions may make it possible for you to use copyrighted material. Learn more about how these exceptions may apply to you.
Reference management software
A reference management program helps you to collect, organise and manage your references according to different reference styles. Read more about the different tools here. We mainly provide support in EndNote.
Guides to EndNote & EndNote Online
Most of what you need to know about EndNote can be found in our guides EndNote X9 (in English) and EndNote Online.
