what tips can you give me to refresh my annotated bibliography?


I need some help rephasing and correcting the grammar in paper.

See example:

Nowadays domestic violence issues are not yet resolved, and most of the time the victims are quite overlooked in criminal trials.

Shawn is correct -- in American English, yet can be used with the simple past tense.


Also, in American English, "nowadays" is considered somewhat archaic and informal. In academic writing, more direct and concise words -- now or today -- are preferred.


I hope this helps.
