In 2013, the Blekinge Institute of Technology Library launched the Writing Guide. The purpose of the guide is to offer students support in their academic writing. With practical advice on the writing process, forming research questions, and how to manage sources and references, we want to guide students to better writing. The purpose of the site is not to describe exactly how theses etc. should be written, but to offer general guidance.

Since 2014 the following universities develop the Writingguide in collaboration: Blekinge Institute of Technology, Kristianstad University, Linnaeus University and Umeå University. The Writing Guide editors are Caroline Åkeborn and Maryam Shabanzab from Blekinge Institute of Technology, Lillemor Lyrén from Umeå University, Henrik Evertsson and Ted Gunnarsson from Linnaeus University and Johan Landgren from Kristianstad University. The guide will be supplemented gradually with resources, templates, more media features etc.
