    Abstract

    This book chapter presented and evaluated the outcome of some corpus query techniques for investigating students’ citation practices. The corpus under investigation was the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus, accessed via the open access version of Sketch Engine. Corpus Query Language (CQL) was used to identify as many instances of citation as possible. The findings of the study were then used to inform academic writing practice activities on the Writing for a Purpose website www.britishcouncil.org/writingforapurpose.
