Invasive Cardiovascular Technology

  1. 1.  Vancouver style - commonly used in the medical and scientific fields A research paper documented in Vancouver style should contain:  A reference list  identifies the references cited in the paper with publication information  appears at the end of the paper with the entries listed numerically and in the same order that they have been cited in the text  A bibliography  lists sources which were not cited in the text but are relevant to the subject  arranged alphabetically by the author’s name or the title, if no author’s name is provided
  2. 2. Using the information from the outside sources:  Remember: Every piece of information that is taken from an outside source must be cited or referenced, unless it is considered common knowledge.  Common knowledge depends upon the audience: specialized vs. general audiences example: atrial fibrillation
  3. 3. Cite all outside information.  Summaries – a more concise version of the original information - highlights the main points in your own words.
  4. 4.  Paraphrases – same information contained in the original source - put in your own words  Use thesaurus for synonyms for example:  “Collaborate” – highlight the word – right click on it – select “synonyms”
  5. 5. Quotations - wording from the outside source –  limit your use of quotes - only use quotes when the information can not easily be reworded – or, if it is reworded, the impact or effect of the writing will be lost.
  6. 6.  (If you do use a direct quote, be sure it goes smoothly from your words to the words of the outside source so that it is understood who said those words and in what context.)  Rather than just saying “The author Davidson said” and then going into the quote, introduce Davidson’s words  Use a signal phrase which identifies exactly who made the statement and in what context. For example: The well-known researcher Charles Davidson (4)argues that “-------.” (p23) or “---.” (4, p23)
  7. 7. Providing references within the text of your essay:  a number is assigned to each reference as it is cited  original number assigned to the reference or source is reused each time the reference is cited in the text, regardless of its previous position in the paper  references are identified by numbers, directly after the name of the author cited, or at the end of the quote or information from the author which has been paraphrased  the numbers: in round brackets, square brackets, or in superscript (ask your instructor which style to use for the assignment)
  8. 8. For example:  Reebs argues that “Lake Superior will be ice-free most years in about three decades.” (1)  One scientist contends that, if current temperatures continue to rise, Lake Superior will have no ice in another thirty years. 1  Reebs (1) has argued that if current temperatures continue to rise, Lake Superior will have no ice in another thirty years.
  9. 9. General Guidelines for Citing Sources  journal titles are abbreviated  months of publication are abbreviated to the first 3 letters  use the last name of the author and the first and middle initials  no periods in between the initials.  the first letter of the first word and any proper names in a book title are capitalized  “ed.” indicates the edition of a book  tables should each be given a brief title  illustrations and figures in the text should be numbered in consecutive order
