Cite them right: the essential guide to referencing and plagiarism


R Pears and G Shields

Published by Pear Tree Books

36 pages

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 how to provide correct references. Cite them right 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. 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.

Praise for Cite them right:

  • “…this excellent, definitive guide…With the lure of plagiarism so strong, acquiring these rules for citation ought to be part of every student’s basic education.”
    Times Educational Supplement (2004)
  • “…invaluable for students struggling to cite diverse information sources correctly…of great benefit to academics seeking to prevent plagiarism through education rather than punishment.”
    Dr Fiona Duggan, Manager, JISC PAS (2005)
