Writing for a publication
RCN referencing guidelines provide guidance about the RCN citation style, which you should use if you are writing an RCN publication. ZoteroBib and Zotero can be used to create references in this style. You should always use the referencing guidelines of the organisation you are writing for.
Learn about the principles of referencing and avoiding plagiarism with these eBooks, available through our study skills guide.
From improving your confidence to writing for publication, we run a range of workshops to help improve your skills at every level.
All sessions are led by a published writer from the Royal Literary Fellows scheme. Spaces are limited and book quickly, so keep an eye on our events page.
