NOTES ON BIBLIOGRAPHY AND REFERENCING

BIBLIOGRAPHY

All books and articles consulted should be included in the bibliography.

There are several different styles used in bibliographies, see the indicative reading above (for books) or any good textbook for books and articles.

REFERENCING

You should reference:

1. Any direct quotations
2. Any facts, figures and diagrams
3. Any models or ideas

Failure to do so not only frequently weakens your argument, but also constitutes plagiarism which is an offence punishable under University regulations.

Again there are several different styles, possibly the easiest for facts, figures and diagrams and models or ideas is to quote the author and date of publication in brackets after the fact, figure, diagram, model or idea. For example, (Artis M and Nixson F, 2001). For newspaper articles and other articles without a specific author this should read publication and date of publication, for example (Financial Times 04/10/04). For the internet the web page address in full should be specified together with the date it was accessed, for example (
