What are the differences between passive and active voice? When do you use them? Is there an advantage in using one over the other? Choosing the "voice" of verb for a research paper — or for any form of writing — can be a tricky task. Voice in grammar, after all, can affect the way the verbs inflect, as well as where points of emphasis, intonations, and stress points may occur. In particular, voice affects the relationship between the action or the state that the verb expresses and the subjects or objects of that verb.

How to create ‘authoritative voice’ in your writing

Do you obsess about the tone of your writing as you revise? You should. Tone is one of the most overlooked elements of writing. It can create interest, or kill it. And of course any publication you want to write for will have its own tone, which it would be smart for you to try to match.
Style, voice, and tone in writing express the attitude of a writer at that moment and in relation to a particular subject and audience. Students often confuse writing style with some vague sense of personal style, or personality. But style is a technical term for the effect a writer can create through attitude, language, and the mechanics of writing. If the writing reflects a consistent choice of patterns, then it is perceived as coherent and harmonious, the style supporting the content.
