Bibliographic Style and Reference Techniques

Revised Edition

By Marlene Burger

Written by a seasoned professional, this revised edition is ideal for students and academics involved in writing or editing academic texts. The focus of the book is the Harvard referencing method (author-date method), but the APA method and the running footnotes method are also examined. The book will help the reader achieve greater uniformity and consistency of style in bibliographies and reference techniques within various publications, from assignments, dissertations, and theses to articles for scholarly journals and books. The bibliographic treatment of all types of sources have been extended to include printed as well as electronic and Internet sources. The purpose of the book is not to prescribe rigid instructions, but to provide a set of solid and easy-to-use guidelines. The principles that guide all referencing are: simplicity, uniformity, and clarity. With its wide range of selected examples, this is a user-friendly and indispensable book for authors and editors, at all levels, in diverse subject areas.
