Resources for writing students

Looking for relevant literature for your seminar papers?
Use Google Scholar instead of Google. Note that EconBiz claims (in this paper) to be superior.

Statistics tools
You don't have fancy statics software on your computer? In some cases, these resources help:

VassarStats - a large free collection of online tests etc.

StatPages - this is a very large link collection leading you to free and/or online statistics tools.

PSPP - a free software, intended as an alternative for SPSS, recommended by a fellow student.

Stat Trek - Teach yourself statistics.

On writing I: ZBW How-to-guides
Deutsche Version  
Partly English version  

On writing II: Formal requirements

Plagiarism and Deception: Information for students (english)
[German version: Plagiat und Täuschung - Hinweise für Studierende]
You might also find these "Avoiding Plagiarism" pages useful, which are part of the Harvard Writing Resources.

In our library, we have a nice little book by Robert Neugeboren: "The Student's Guide to Writing Economics". Here is an older manuscript version of the book for download.

A short guide on how to meet the formal requirements of seminar papers or master theses is here for download (but please ignore the maximum number of pages indicated therein). Here is something similar in German.

On writing III: Style
Here are some links I like:

On revising

On the writer's block (which means "Schreibblockade" in German. It happens to the best of us)

Writing Clear, Concise Sentences  

Here is something in German: Im WS 2010/11 und den Sommersemestern 2010 & 2011 hatte ich zu Wiwi aktuell, die Zeitschrift des FB 07, eine kleine Serie über das Schreiben im Studium beigetragen. Eine Zusammenstellung dieser Artikelchen finden Sie hier. SPON brachte gerade Präsentationstipps, die ich eigentlich sehr gut fand, bis auf einen, der da lautete: "Wenn es gar nicht anders geht, sollten Erstsemester den Vortrag erst einmal ganz ablesen" - niemals auch nur in Erwägung ziehen!
