Direct quotations, facts and figures, as well as ideas and theories, from bot h published and unpublished works, must be referenced. Why Reference?

In the case of a book , ‘bibliogra phical details’ refers to: author/editor, year of publication, title, edition, volume number, place of publication and publisher as found on the front and back of the title page. (Not all of these details will necessarily be applicable). In the case of a journal article the details required include: author of the article, year of publication, title of the article, title of the journal, volume and issue number of the journal, and page numbers. For all electronic information , in addition to the above you sh ould note the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) if one exists, and if one does not exist, the web address (URL) of the database you found the article in.

Guide to in-Text Citation and Referencing

...Guide to In-text Citation and Referencing IN-TEXT CITATION 1) If you are paraphrasing from any source in which the author’s name is given, you must mention the author’s surname, date of publication and the page number. For example: Chase (1979:204) reported that… According to Henderson and King (1987:176),… 2) If you are summarising the overall idea of a book or article, you just have mention the author’s surname and date of publication. The page number is not necessary. For Example: The study concluded that there was no clear link between obesity and genetics (Smith, 2006). 3) If you are citing from a source written by more than two authors, rather than writing the name of every author, use the name of the first author followed by et al, which means and others. For example: Jones et al (2001) explained that… Comment [KHEI1]: Please note that et al should be in italics 4) If you are using an authoritative source but there is no author, you should cite the name of the organisation in the text. For example: A report published by the BBC (2004) indicated that… There has been a slight increase in the number of homeless children in developed countries in the last 10 years (UNESCO, 2008). 5) If you are giving exact quotations, you should identify the page numbers on which the quotations can be found. For example: Black (2007:143) claims that, ‘……………………………..’ 6) If the quotation is 3 lines of longer, you should indent the whole quotation. For......

The BOLD Comic Sans font in 14 pt identifies this part of each citation. ❑ The second part is a template containing the components needed to cite the resource. The grey boxes       identify the template in each citation. This part is in 12 pt Times New Roman. ❑ The third part provides an actual example of a resource found in a Lexington County District One Library Media Center. The red font in 12 pt Times New Roman, double-spaced lines and hanging indent identify this part of each citation. II.

Feduni-General-Guide-to-Referencing-2014

...General guide to referencing 2014 edition From the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Quality) Many students find learning the unfamiliar nature of academic writing a challenging experience. The puzzling art of referencing is no exception, with its traditions and initially obscure formatting rules, referencing can seem to be an overwhelming and annoying requirement standing between you and submitting your assignment by the due date. This guide has been written especially for you, new and returning Federation University Australia (FedUni) students, to demystify referencing and provide numerous practical examples of when and how referencing should be used in your writing at FedUni. As you study, you’ll come to understand that referencing is just a set of rules that you need to follow to adequately acknowledge the work and thinking of others in your assignments. These rules are important because they allow your teachers to decide whether you’ve demonstrated that you understand the topic at hand and show that you have completed the assignment yourself. If you ignore the requirements to reference source materials in your assignment, your teacher may decide you have committed ‘plagiarism’. This means you have failed to reference according to the rules and in doing so, not demonstrated that you have used the work of others in your work. Plagiarism is a very serious matter that can result in unpleasant consequences for your studies and career. So please take the time to......

Mla Works Cited Guide (Teacher)

...MLA Works Cited Page: Basic Format MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities. This resource, updated to reflect the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th ed.) and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (3rd ed.), offers examples for the general format of MLA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the Works Cited page. According to MLA style, you must have a Works Cited page at the end of your research paper. All entries in the Works Cited page must correspond to the works cited in your main text. Basic Rules • Begin your Works Cited page on a separate page at the end of your research paper. It should have the same one-inch margins and last name, page number header as the rest of your paper. • Label the page Works Cited (do not italicize the words Works Cited or put them in quotation marks) and center the words Works Cited at the top of the page. • Double space all citations, but do not skip spaces between entries. • Indent the second and subsequent lines of citations five spaces so that you create a hanging indent. • List page numbers of sources efficiently, when needed. If you refer to a journal article that appeared on pages 225 through 250, list the page numbers on your Works Cited page as 225-50. Additional Basic Rules New to MLA 2009 • For every entry, you must......

Difference Between Apa and Mla

...REFERENCING: Reference in a research work is an essential part studying. Referencing is a standardized method of formatting the information sources you have used in your assignments or written work. Any given referencing style serves two purposes: acknowledges the source, allows the reader to trace the source. There are two major and most popular reference styles adopted by writers and scholars. MLA and APA reference styles are the common styles adopted. DIIFERENCES BETWEEN APA AND MLA American Psychological Association (APA) and Modern Language Association (MLA) are writing and formatting styles used in papers, reports, and academic essays. APA is predominately used in the social sciences while MLA is predominately used in the liberal arts and humanities. The guidelines provide overall formatting for content, style and references. While they have many similarities, there are also many differences. Despite their differences, the APA and MLA citation systems have the same overall function in a research paper—sources are acknowledged via in-text citations, each of which corresponds to an entry in an alphabetical list of works at the end of the paper, referred to as “Works Cited” in MLA Style and “References” in APA Style. However, the MLA Handbook also mentions some variations, such as a “Works Consulted” list, which contains sources not cited within the body of the paper, and an annotated bibliography, which includes a brief description or evaluation of each source. APA......
