Anyone give me some pointers, i'm fuking shite at it, is this right?

 

In the document:

 

For example in 1.2.6 Sign Language is to be “provided for all pre-recorded audio content in synchronized media” (W3C, 2008)

 

 

 

Then under Ref list:

 

World Wide Web Consortium. (2008) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Available at: http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/from10/comparison/ (Accessed 28/10/2009)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks. :)

After the quote you need the page number (if there is one) after the year.

 

and for the reference it should be

 

World Wide Web Consortium (2008): Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Available from: http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/from10/comparison/ (Accessed 28/10/2009)

 

The title is always in italics.

 

Hope that helps.  O0

It is an absolute nightmare and caused me hassle all the way through my degree.  I used a good step-by-step guide at the time which I followed letter for letter so I couldn't get pulled up on my referencing.  I can't remember the eact website I used but it's similar to this one which might be a help http://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/library/citing_references/docs/Citing_Refs.pdf

Quick question here: my lass is finishing off her dissertation and she's paraphrasing rather than directly quoting an author.  So does she just write her sentence (obviously no quotation marks as it's not a direct quotation) and then put ( Author, 2007 ) afterwards?

 

That's how I recall it but it's been a while.  It's obviously Harvard referencing btw.  Thanks in advance.

Get a referencing program like endnote if you're going to have more than 10-15 references. Available from the usual sources. Makes life immeasurably easier. The last review I had published had 74 references so would have been virtually impossible otherwise.
