Product Description

Review

'The 2004 edition of Cite them right was a godsend to new and to experienced researchers, this 2008 edition is even better. It has been updated, extensively expanded and I shall continue to use it - and to recommend it to students and report writers.' - Judith Bell, author of Doing Your Research Project

'I think it is the best on the market. I use it a lot and recommend it to students.' - Professor Helen E Higson, Head of Learning and Teaching, Aston Business School, Pro-Vice Chancellor International Relations, Aston University

'As a lecturer for communications courses at different levels I often have problems explaining how to cite references from different sources to my students without them getting too baffled. This book lays out the correct way in a simple to understand format and the inclusion of examples makes it even easier to understand.' - Mau Craze-Gray, University of Cumbria

'As a university lecturer, I provide guidance to students. As such, I must be absolutely correct. This reference book has ensured that I can give the assistance required and of course...be correct.' - David Pellett, University of Teeside

'If you're looking at going to college or university, this book is fantastic and a must have. Well laid out with great explanation.' - Maxine Knightlatter, East Sussex

'This book is the standard for referencing and citations at our university and I can see why. It is useful for people at all levels of writing, from those still at school to the very top of academia. The book is very clearly and logically laid out and, in light of the increasing number of electronic sources, has been updated to include any manner of places from which you may want to quote, even including sources such as director's commentaries on DVDs!' - Heather Bates, London

An outstandingly comprehensive and useful guide which I would recommend to everyone doing original research for writing an essay, dissertation, research paper or book, including all students at secondary and higher education levels, their teachers and/or supervisors, authors, librarians and other non-academic researchers.

Despite the level of very necessary detail covered, this guide is very easy to use, in part thanks to clear sub-sections and contrasting typography, the inclusion of many practical examples of references, a helpful glossary and a comprehensive index which, hitherto, I have always found to be effective.

Coverage of the necessary material divides is split into five logically separate sections.

Section A introduces referencing, what it is and why it needs to be done. There are helpful comments on how to avoid plagiarism, the significance of both common knowledge and confidential information for the referencing process and the question of which referencing style to use.

Section B summarises the most important methods of displaying citations and quotations within a body of text. Section C does the same for displaying references in a reference list and/or bibliography. Both sections use copious examples to demonstrate theoretical points raised. The most common sources are dealt with, namely books, individual book chapters, journal articles (printed and electronic), newspaper articles and internet web sites.

Section D includes individual sections on every conceivable source type that might be encountered and how referencing is done for each source type, again with practical examples. For this section, the Harvard (author-date) style is followed.

I am using this book for my Degree. I had never had to use referencing before this and had basically NO clue. This book is very 'user friendly' and has every reference you could ever need. This honestly is the best book I have ever bought and will see me right through my degree. I highly recommend this book it will take away all the stress in trying to sort your referencing out.

This is excellent as a basic introduction and the layout is very clear. However, I would have preferred to see more than one example of each type and, given the amount of "white space" in this book, I feel there would have been space to do this. I would also have liked to see more information on citing different editions (especially dates to use where, say, the book I'm referring to is a British edition of a US original, up to its umpteenth reprint and no edition number is given). Also rather more on translations and on referring to a whole body of work by a single author - i.e. making general comments rather than on a specific book. It would also be helpful to have a little information on citing authors whose names do not fit the typical forename plus surname format. So, overall, I would say this is OK, providing solid information, but that I for one was left with various queries for my next tutorial!

Excellent source when having to use Harvard referencing. Recommended by Uni (Plymouth)and peers. Looks horrific to use initially but is actually very easy to use! (Honest!) Very clearly laid out with examples for each source of reference and in text citation examples too. Several other methods of referencing are referred to, but the bulk of the book is the Harvard way.

This is probably one of the most useful books I've bought at the beginning of my university course. When producing assignments, you're expected to cite your references absolutely right! There are very slight variations on the referencing at our University, however, it is based around the Harvard type. This book gives you quick glance examples of Harvard referencing, so you can't really go wrong. I've used it while writing up all of my assignments so far and will probably continue to do so to double check I've done it right. I'm a mature student and the course I'm doing is my first degree, so referencing was completely new to me. I'd recommend this book to anyone, young or old!! Extremely useful if you're not confident at referencing.

This has been an absolute life saver throughout my degree. My university uses the Harvard system of referencing and this book covers this brilliantly and comprehensively, I haven't struggled to find what I'm looking for once. In all my essays, lecturers have commented on my perfect referencing and I can assure you that is not down to me, but to this fantastic guide.

It's a must buy for any university student not confident with referencing or even you are, it is always useful to have a 'go-to' for double checking! It covers Harvard the most, so double check your system is in here and if it is, make sure there's enough information to warrant buying it.

Best university book I've invested in - a must!

It concentrates mainly on the Harvard style of referencing, but also includes guidelines on OSCOLA (for law schools), APA, MLA & MHRA. There is also a useful section on avoiding plagiarism. The book is excellent value for money.
