Hi!

I have one question regarding writing form: I am currently writing my final paper on International Economics. My tutor explicitly told me to remark my own assumptions, statements, etc. whenever I make them.
For this purpose, I´ve just used the I-form - first form, singular. Now, I think that this might be not correct, or not usual.

Does anyone know how this works in scientific writing?

Thanks in advance!

Probably, you are not the only author of this paper. I would suggest one of the following ways.

"We assumed that ..."

"The research team assumed ... "

"It is/was assumed ..."

"The following assumtions were made ....
Thanks for the advice!

I am writing the paper on my own. Do you think it is correct to write:

"I assumed that..."

"My assumptions are the following:..." ?

I thought one is not allowed to use the I-form at all. Am I wrong?

Scientific writing has to be objecitive and persuasive, you had better avoid too much "i think, in my opinon, i am afraid, i guess etc." Facts speak louder than your own wishful ideas, right?

in your writing, you should make sure what methods you are employing, what problems are to be handled, what conclusion would you like to arrive at, maybe you have already had your hypothesis. in a common sense, scientific writing needs to deal with the following words:"what, why, how...".
Better not to use I-form.

If I were you, I would have used

"It was assumed ..

"The assumptions made..

"The following assumtions are/were made ...

When you're going to deal with scientific writing, it's important to ensure that you haven't entirely copied someone's material which you want to include in your own research. You can use another writer's ideas but you'll have to render them in your own words. Although, if your writing skills aren't good enough, you can use a scientific paraphrasing tool to make your paper look professional and unique. Paraphrasing is a critical thing when you're working on a certain kind of paper since when you're gathering data, there's a very likelihood that you'll use a piece of other scientist's work in your own research. In such a case, paraphrasing should be used in order to avoid plagiarism.
