    3. 3. Reference and Citing • REFERENCE: the detailed description of the document from which you have obtained your information. Referencing is a way of demonstrating that you have done that reading. • CITING: acknowledging within your text the document from which you have obtained your information.
    4. 4. Reference Vs. Bibliography • The terms „References‟ and „Bibliography‟ are often used synonymously, but there is a difference in meaning between them. • References are the items you have read and specifically referred to (or cited) in your work , and your list of sources at the end of the assignment will be headed „References‟.
    5. 5. Reference vs. Bibliography • Bibliography is a list of everything you read - whether or not you referred specifically to it . • Normally contain sources that have been cited and also those found to be influential, but decided not to cite. • A bibliography can give a tutor an overview of which authors have influenced your ideas and arguments even if you do not specifically refer to them.
    6. 6. Why do we need reference? • To acknowledge others works • To allow others (readers) to find the original sources easily (cited reference) • To get recognition & authentication of the work. • To make the work informative. (Quality) • To trace the intellectual development of the ideas you present. • To avoid plagiarism
    7. 7. Plagiarism Examples: • the verbatim copying of others work withoutacknowledgement. • the close paraphrasing of others work by simply changing a few words of altering the order of presentation. • Coping others idea • the unacknowledged quotation of phrases.
    8. 8. WHAT NEEDS TO BE REFERENCED? • Has it been presented formally into the public domain in some way? • Has it been presented in a tangible form? (Printed material, the Internet, a public talk/lecture etc). • Does someone have an ownership of it? Look for a named author or writer, or organization, including a website or host? • Is the information presented in the source in question outside the realm of „common knowledge‟ ?
    9. 9. When..? • To give the source of tables, pics, statistics and diagrams which might be copied or have been a source of idea. • When describing a theory, model or practice associated with a particular writer. • To give credibility to an argument presented by you. • When giving emphasis to a particular idea that has found a measure of agreement. • To inform the reader of sources of direct quotations or definitions. • When paraphrasing another person's idea that you feel is particularly significant.

    16. 16. Some basics, APA Style • APA style requires authors to use the past tense or present perfect tense when using signal phrases to describe earlier research, • for example, Jones (1998) found or Jones (1998) has found • If you are referring to an idea from another work but NOT directly quoting the material, or making reference to an entire book -make reference to the author and year of publication and not the page number in your in-text reference.
    17. 17. It is good to use quotation when • You want to analyze or challenge the quotation in question or if you feel the quotation supports your own argument or point of view. • You want to add interest or impact to an introduction or conclusion. • If you are directly quoting from a work, you will need to include the author, year of publication, and the page number for the reference (preceded by "p."). • According to Jones (1998), "Students often had difficulty using APA style, especially when it was their first time" (p. 199).
    18. 18. Quotation.. • Place direct quotations that are 40 words, or longer, in a free-standing block of typewritten lines, and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, indented 1/2 inch from the left margin. • Jones's (1998) study found the following: Students often had difficulty using APA style, especially when it was their first time ……… teacher for help. (p. 199)

    20. 20. Some basics • A Work by Three to Five Authors: • List all the authors the first time you cite the source. (Kernis, Cornell, Sun, Berry, & Harlow, 1993) • In subsequent citations, (Kernis et al., 1993) • Organization as an Author: • If the author is an organization or a government agency, According to the American Psychological Association (2000),... • If the organization has a well-known abbreviation • First citation: (Mothers Against Drunk Driving [MADD], 2000) Second citation: (MADD, 2000)
    21. 21. Some basics • Two or More Works (Berndt, 2002; Harlow, 1983) • Authors With the Same Last Name: • use first initials (E. Johnson, 2001; L. Johnson, 1998) • Personal Communication: • For interviews, e-mails, and other person-to-person communication, cite the communicator's name and the date of the communication. E.g. • (E.
