Bibliographic Style and Reference Techniques


Bibliographic Style and Reference Techniques by Marlene Burger

Written by a seasoned professional, this long-awaited book is ideal for students and academics at all levels, lecturers, supervisors and promoters, researchers - in fact, anyone involved in writing or editing academic texts. The focus of the book is the Harvard method (author-date method), but the APA method and the running footnotes method have also been included. The aim is to assist users to achieve greater uniformity and consistency of style in bibliographies and reference techniques within various publications - from assignments, dissertations and theses to articles for scholarly journals and books.The bibliographic treatment of all types of sources has been extended to include printed as well as electronic and Internet sources. The purpose of the book is not to prescribe rigid instructions, but to provide a set of solid and easy-to-use guidelines. The principles guiding all referencing are simplicity, uniformity, and clarity. With its wide range of selected examples, this is a user-friendly and indispensable book.
