RESEARCH AND WRITING LAB

Through one-on-one appointments and periodic workshops, the Research and Writing Lab offers students supplementary support in the content, structuring, research, documentation, and execution of academic papers in the English language. Students can meet with the tutor from the early stages of an assignment to develop ideas, discuss paper structuring, and learn about available research resources and helpful documentation habits. Other students may prefer to approach the Research and Writing Lab at a later stage in the writing process, after a draft has been written, to discuss how the paper could communicate its ideas more effectively.

Students can schedule thirty-minute individual sessions with the Research and Writing tutors by writing to: rwlab@paris.edu
