9780335220892: The Complete Guide to Referencing and Avoiding Plagarism

  • Why is there so much emphasis on citing sources in some written work?
  • How can I be sure I am referencing sources correctly?
  • What is plagiarism and how do I avoid it?
There is a great deal of emphasis on accurate referencing in written work for university students, and those writing for professional purposes, but little information on the ‘when’, the ‘why’, as well as the ‘how’ of referencing. This book fills that gap, giving clear guidelines on how to correctly cite from external sources, what constitutes plagiarism, and how it can be avoided.

A unique feature of the book is the comparisons it makes between different referencing styles - such as Harvard, APA, MLA and Numerical referencing styles - which are shown side-by-side. This provides a useful guide, for students as they progress through higher education, and particularly for those on combined studies courses - who may be expected to use two, and sometimes three, different referencing styles.

Other special features in the book include:

  • Essays demonstrating referencing in action
  • Exercises on when to reference, and on what is, and what is not, plagiarism
  • A ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section on the referencing issues that most often puzzle people
  • A detailed guide to referencing electronic sources, and advice on how to choose reliable Internet sites
A Complete Guide to Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism is essential reading for all students and professionals who need to use referencing to accurately reflect the work of others and avoid plagiarism.
