Spelling advice on the Academic Writing site

Poor spelling often discourages potential employers as the chief executive of the National Governors Association announced that some of the top schools in the UK have received high-level job applications containing mistakes of spelling and grammar.

We’re in the process of developing a spelling page on the Academic Writing Support guide which we hope allays some of the fears surrounding this most challenging area. As you’ll notice we’re also starting to buy some books to support our library collection.


Think of dictionaries and you may consider browsing  Oxford Dictionaries online (available via library.lincoln.ac.uk > Find > Databases > O > Oxford English Dictionary Online), which contains some useful spelling advice.
