Date: 28th of March 2017

Following the success of our first IFRA Fellows workshop in February, IFRA is happy to organise its second research training seminar this month. As with the previous one, it will be run by IFRA staff members Dr. Elodie Apard, Dr. Emilie Guitard, Ismael Maazaz and Sara Panata.
While our first session dealt mainly with bibliographical research, this one will be devoted to quoting and referencing in academic writing. It will address crucial topics, including:
- How to avoid plagiarism
- How to quote academic works following various citation styles
- How to create accurate bibliographies or reference lists, notably with your personal Zotero bibliographical database.
Participants of our first workshop are thus particularly encouraged to attend this new session.
Due to limited room availability (15 people max.), we strongly advise interested participants to register rapidly (imperatively before Friday 24 of March).
