Effective citing and referencing
When to cite
When we acknowledge the use of materials or ideas that are not ours, the reader must be able to clearly distinguish between our own words, illustrations, findings and ideas and the words and work of other creators.
Style guides give us advice for documenting our sources in written work, but they are less helpful with other formats and mediums. Nevertheless, we can be honest and we can be helpful to our audience(s)—for assessment purposes, this is an expectation.
In written work, we should cite in the text where we have used an external source. The inclusion of a reference in a bibliography (works cited/list of references) at the end of the paper is not enough.
In other forms of work (music, video, artistic pieces, we are expected to acknowledge use of external sources appropriately.
In presentations we can provide our audience with a handout of our references, or list our sources on the final slide(s).
During an oral presentation, we can acknowledge the sources we are using by the use of phrases, for example, As Gandhi put it …” or According to …”. We can show a direct quotation by saying Quote Unquote or by signalling with rabbits ears or air quotes. Ina presentation supported by posters or slides, we can include short or full references on the slides if short references are made on the slides, then we should again provide a full list of references on a handout or on the final slide(s).
We can include references or acknowledgments of other people’s work in the final credits of a film. Apiece of music can be accompanied by programme notes indicating influences and direct sources. Art on display can be labelled or captioned.
