Report Writing: Introduction

Report Writing

A report is a structured written document directed to a specific audience in response to some issue, event or problem (Monash, 2018).

Reports are based on research and frequently offer recommendations for action on the progress of a project (Curtin, 2015).

Reports are a widely used form of communication in the professional world and are therefore an important skill to learn at university (Deakin, 2018).

In the following video the University of New South Wales Library provide a brief introduction to report writing.
