Referencing in the Body Of The Text


You will be expected to include references to published work as you go along.  As Cottrell (1999: 123) says:


'You must give the reference whenever you draw on a source of information:


·       As your inspiration (in general).

·       As the source of a particular theory article or viewpoint.

·       For specific information such as statistics, examples or case studies.

·       For direct quotations (reproducing the writer's exact words).

·       For texts which you paraphrase rather than quote.'


The general form of each reference in the body of the text is:


First                 -           Author's Name

Then                -           Date of publication

Then                -           Page number(s) (These are only given

where specific pages are being referred to)


The following table is designed to help you with most situations you will encounter.  It is important to employ these rules consistently, even if this may seem pedantic.



To refer to:

For example

A work by a single author

(Cottrell, 1999:125) where 1999 is the date and 125 the page number.

A work by two authors

(Cohen and Marshall, 1997)

A work by more than two authors

(Gabriel et al., 2000)

More than  one publication by the same author

(Seegram, 1995, 1998) in ascending date order

More than one publication by different authors

(Ahmed, 1995, Smith, 1997) in alphabetical order

More than one publication by different authors with the same surname

(James, A., 1990, James P., 1999)

An author referred to by another author (secondary reference)

(Mwansa cited by Samuels, 1994:678)

A publication where no author is given but an organization's name is

(Hanson Trust plc, 1998)

Newspaper or journal article with no author given

(The Times, 1999)

An internet site

(BBC Online, 1999)
