Now, take out the relevant information and discard the unrelated ones. While writing thesis, arrange those shreds of evidence to prove your thesis statement in such a manner to enable the readers to understand your view point.

     The style of referring other authors may be different, the most common being APA referencing. When you are researching, you can prove it by citing other's point of view and integrating these with your opinion. The other referencing styles are Harvard style, MLA, Chicago style and Vancouver. Usually, the instructor provides you with referencing style to be used in the paper but if not you can choose it yourself. APA referencing is used in social sciences and engineering related researches. MLA is used to cite sources for writing humanities based papers. You must have a thorough knowledge of the reference style to be employed in the document.   

        Academic writing style-

   
    
    
    Avoid informal tone and exclamatory sentences in academic genre. There are some basic rules of grammar and punctuation to be followed in this writing. Use formal language and while writing, remember the target audience. The content must have utility for the readers as they may or may not be intellectuals to understand all the terms and concepts.

      Logical writing

   Academic writing comprises of many different elements like theories, data, evidence, reasoning, questioning, arguments, etc. Now, all these elements should be unified to construct a whole document exhibiting an idea or subject. The paragraphs and components must be connected to form a perfect picture depicting the basic concept or conveying your intentions.

     
     Revising and Polishing

     Last but not the least, you must review and polish the writing to convert it into a finished product.  The content must flow smoothly from one level to the next. All the components must be revised accurately to impart Excellency to the document.


     Conclusively, it can be said that the academic writing needs much more refinement than other writing genres. An academic writer must be more cautious of his work to make it perfect and presentable.
