Scientific Language: Sources

Stage 1 and 2 of the Introduction require you to refer to published research and/or theory on the subject matter of the report. When you refer to a source in your writing you can choose to focus on the information in the source or on the source of the information (usually the author). Your choice of focus influences the other kinds of grammatical choices you will have to make (i.e. report verbs, tense etc.) and also how you will develop your introduction.
