Writing is a creative exercise. However, current style manual supports your academic work
by giving you guidelines about the formatting of written works in Estonian Business School
(from now on EBS). The aim of all written works in EBS is to contribute to the existing body
of knowledge in your particular field of study. All written works including research projects
are exhibiting critical writing and reading skills. All written works of EBS aim at academic
integrity, contribution to the literature or empirical body of knowledge, focus to the reader, and
applicability either as policy implications or strategic guidelines to businesses.
Thus, we suggest all the students independently from curriculum or level of academic competences
to follow the instructions presented in this style manual. Also, it has to be added that
formatting guidelines are not formal codes of conduct such as laws but they are rather institutional
norms that help to create mutual understanding and respect toward the reader and authors of
previous research. Enjoy the writing, so we can enjoy reading it.
