"Cite Them Right" has become essential reading for students and academics. With mounting concern in education and the media about plagiarism, and with the explosion of Internet and other media information, "Cite Them Right" offers clear advice on how to avoid plagiarism and provide correct references. This new, expanded edition contains detailed examples of in-text and reference list citation for all print and electronic resources used by students. New media such as the Internet, weblogs, text messages and virtual learning environments (VLEs) are all included. A new chapter on plagiarism details major pitfalls and how to avoid them. Emphasis is placed on the Harvard (Author-date) system and the British Standard (Numeric) system is also featured. There is additional information on secondary referencing and common conventions, and a glossary of terms is included. Providing students with the guidance they need in this essential part of their academic development, "Cite Them Right" is of equal value to academics, researchers and prospective authors.
