The Hum. 4 paper is due in a few short days & my inbox is happily filled with citation conundrums.
Why do we do it?
Academics cite for a variety of good reasons, including:
- To supply the reader with the source information, should the reader wish to locate the item.
- To demonstrate use of, and credit, the work being drawn upon.
- To distinguish the different voices contributing to one’s project, including distinguishing one’s own voice and contribution to the conversation.
A quick shout-out to Noodletools.com (integrates with Google docs!) for citation creation and it even helps with in-text citation format.
Citation sticky wickets? Let me know, happy to help!
