could someone give me some clarifcation on what this involves?
I looked on wikipedia but I'm still a little confused.
cause I can tell you - but surely if you're asking the question you should know what it is?
an essay to hand in tomorrow and I could use some help. Thanks.
Taken from my uni's website.
But I'm still unsure; does the reference follow the quote immediately or go at the end of the essay, like the bibliography?
if you're citing something within the text it's this...
"Crane (1986) suggests that the chart is often a pastiche of niche sounds which reflect buying patterns of many taste formations rather than a monolithic mainstream'
Footnote it as:
Thorton, S. Club Cultures: Music, Media and Subcultural Capital (Cambridge: Polity Press 1995) p 100
but it gets more complicated when you want to take a big chunk of what someone else has said. In that case, you do this...
"Gender rather than being something fixed from birth, may also be understood as socially constructed... gender is given different meanings and values through the social scaffolding of masculinity and femininity" (Reading 2002)
Reading, A "Selling Sexuality in the Gay and Lesbian Press" in Stokes, J. and Reading, A. (Eds) The Media in Britain: Current Debates and Developments (Macmillan 1999) p 266
Does that help?
there are also lots of different types of harvard referencing APA/Chicago author
Loosely translated in the efforts above. That's probably your best bet, and the referencing system that most UK universities expect undergrads to use. It's called Chicago author.
anyhoo was that helpful mister?
that's very helpful.
I'm all annoyed out today.
