Using Exclamation Marks!

This one is easy.

Don't use exclamation points in academic writing, unless you are quoting someone who has used them.

In scholarly writing, an issue is marked as important by its meaning, not by following it with exclamation marks.

Save those exclamation points for your emails, your novels, and your poetry.
