referencing

Postby lauraw » Fri Apr 06, 2012 5:24 pm

Hi All,

Thought I had got the hang of this and now tutor's are off for easter and I need to finish it!

With referencing I understand you have to reference things that you read on your essay but does this only account for theories that you read or the whole content of the essay? So for example prejudice, I write what it is etc etc but do I have to reference the website I got it from in my essay or just in reference at the end? :|

Please help!

Laura

As I understand it, if you have used the material from website or book the it needs to be referenced in the essay. So say you wrote about Milgrims study and said Blass (1999) also found the same outcome from his study (website, year)
Any materials you read for background knowledge, but dont use any information from them, then they go into the bibliography.
