Effective citing and referencing
A summary is a much-shortened summing up of someone else’s work. We might summarize a chapter or academic paper, or perhaps even a book, in two or three sentences. Again, although we are using our own words, we must still cite the original source used.
Summaries are often used in a review of the literature—when we sum up what other writers have said or done in investigating a topic or theme.
When we use someone else’s
exact words, we quote that original author, and we show this is a quotation by using quotation marks. Longer quotations maybe indicated by the use of an indented paragraph (without quotation marks. As well as indicating the words quoted, we must also acknowledge the author by using an in-text citation, the citation in turn linking to a full reference.
Quotations should normally be used sparingly and carefully essays on literary subjects or from historical documents might include more quotations than other essays.
