Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'[A] comprehensive manual on all aspects of using information from another source, from the start of the process through to the finish. …The book is extremely influential and for many students, academics and librarians it has become the 'official' guide to referencing.' – White, Jourbanal of Information Literacy

"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, UK

"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, UK

"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, UK

"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, UK

"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, UK
