The Purdue OWL: Subject-Specific Resources

The Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) offers this helpful collection of resources designed to help individuals understand the writing conventions and best practices of different professional and academic fields. These resources may be especially helpful for students as well as professionals who find themselves writing for new or specific audiences. This collection contains nine different guides - some of which include Professional, Technical Writing, Writing in the Social Sciences, Creative Writing, Writing in Engineering, and Journalism and Journalistic Writing. Many of these guides contain a number of more specific instructions for particular writing tasks. For example, the guide entitled "Healthcare Writing" contains instructions for medical journalism, SOAP notes (a kind of clinical documentation), and for writing patient education materials.
