As a student at the Faculty of Humanities, you will write academic home assignments. In order to write a good assignment, it is essential that you use sources correctly. Please read this introduction to the four basic principles of using sources: reference, paraphrase, quotation and list of references.
Students at the Faculty of Humanities are no longer obliged to hand in a declaration concerning the proper use of sources and quotation. You can read more the University of Oslo's rules and regulations relating to sources, quotation and cheating on this web-page.
