Instructions and Help about Who 8850 Form References

Hi my name is farik and in this video I will explain how to use references what you should refer to and lastly when to use references let's start off by looking at how to use references one key aspect of academic writing is the use of citations or references when writing scholarly material you must always be transparent about which ideas are yours and which stem from previous research therefore it is important to specify where your theories or claims originate from what previous material did you take into account when you started writing think of it as guidance to your readers by referring to other people's ideas you make it possible for your readers to follow your train of thought they might be interested in the previous research themselves or maybe they just wish to read it to make sure you have interpreted everything correctly then there's the aspect of paying respect to those before you you've used their scientific findings and it's appropriate to let them and your readers know this also when you refer to people you're positioning yourself within the field you show that you know who the leading experts are within your subject that you have grasped put it published and that you have done your homework academic writing and referencing is all about building a line of argument that is well grounded so what should you refer to you should refer to the sources that you've used in your own work if you've read an article a book or a report and used IDs data or facts from it then you must show this usually this is quite obvious but of course questions could arise for instance what should you do if the original idea is that you want to refer to or presented in an other book than one you've read let's say that the author halt is summarizing works by Freud who should you refer to the answer is that you have to show that Freud's ideas were presented to you through holt whole should be included in your reference list or bibliography at the end of your paper of course the best thing is to read Freud yourself and make your own judgment based on the primary source so is there anything you shouldn't refer to well start by thinking of your readers who are they you shouldn't have to refer to common knowledge such as during what year is the Second World War lasted but be careful of using expressions such as it is well known or similar since such a statement might be met by criticism it is important to refer to the material that you have used in your own work because if you forget to do so you risk being accused of plagiarism which is a form of cheating if there aren't any references in your text your readers will assume that you have come up with everything yourself it is often quite obvious when this isn't the case and if you use another person's work without referencing this is easily detected so be sure to clearly state whether an ID data or fact is yours or someone else's even if you intend to use your own previous work it is important that you refer to it you're not allowed to reuse material without stating so exactly when should you make a reference well there are several ways in which you can refer to what you've used either by quoting paraphrasing or summarizing when you quote someone you use the exact wording as the original source you recognize a quote either by the quotation mark surrounding the quote or if it's a long quote by making an indentation in the text which is easily done by pressing the tab button a quote should always be followed by reference including page number quotes are however used specially in academic writing and are mostly applied when you want to stress a certain fact usually the text is much easier to read when you paraphrase previous research instead of quoting it word by word paraphrasing essentially means rewriting material using your own words this is a common way of incorporating other people's work into your text it shows the reader that you've understood a little research and found your own way to apply it into your context another way to use previous research is by summarizing you can sum up an entire book or even a whole body of work in just a few sentences in order to relate it to your own work the difference between paraphrasing and summarizing is that while paraphrasing refers to a smaller specific portion of a source summarizing presents an overview where you put the main ideas of say a book or an author into your own words no matter if you quote paraphrase or sum up earlier research this has to be made clear to your readers and that is why referencing is so important good luck with your academic writing.
