in-text referencing

Post by CXB »

Evening all, know it is late.

Can anyone tell me the easiest way to in-text referencing on my paragraphs. What should it look like, could anyone send me some details. I have done my title reference list at the end of my essay

Hope you can help. :pray:

This website is a fantastic source of information for correctly referencing in your essay:-

http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm

Look up the source of information and it'll give you the method you need :)

A quick example would be, if I were to directly quote something in my work it would look something like this.....

''To really figure out if a tomato is a fruit or vegetable, you need to know what makes a fruit a fruit, and a vegetable a vegetable'' [ScienceBob, 2014]

And if I were to Paraphrase my findings....

A tomato has seeds and therefore, technically, it is categorised as a fruit [ScienceBob, 2014]

With my reference list at the end of my essay looking something like this....

ScienceBob, 2014. Is a Tomato a Fruit or Vegetable? [Online] Available at: <http://www.sciencebob.com/questions/q-t ... etable.php> [Accessed 07 June 2014]


Don't take my reference too literally, it's just to give you an idea; and more than likely a rubbish source with the wrong date (it was done quickly and roughly)! And I hope it helps to give you an idea how to reference your work!

Good luck with your essay and all the best :)
