    Question Referencing Issues




    I'm planning to sometime in the future write an article based on only one particular book however it is unclear to me if I should add the referencing on every line of information I take from the book?

    For example,

    "It is said that water is in liquid form(Samiun, 2016)."

    So do I need to do that parantheses for every information I refer to a book or is it enough to just put the whole reference at the end of the article without inserting the parantheses on information I use from the book? Also, how should I properly put the pages in the references? Should I just say 1-xxx(all the pages?)

    Wa alaykum assalam,

    I doubt you would need to quote the reference for every line of information within the article itself.

    Placing an index-type page at the end would be a good idea with all of the references corresponding to the page number there. For example, if you make a particular statement, you could just write in small script (1) at the end of that statement, and then at the end of the entire article write (1) there and reference the page you got it from. I have seen articles set out like that many times. If that makes sense?

    Jazakallakhair yeah it does. So it goes like this right:

    "A Golden Apple fell from a Tree called the Tree Of Spotify (1)"
    "Paper are made from Wood (2)"
    "If it burns, don't touch it as it may cause harm to your skin (3)"

    Reference:

    1. Water World, Gordon Freeman, Pg 4
    2. Water World, Gordon Freeman, Pg 20
    3. Water World, Gordon Freeman, Pg 9

    Re: Referencing Issues




    If you are writing a research paper, or anything for your college submission, you can ask your instructors about the type of referencing system they want you to use. Broadly speaking, there are two types of referencing systems: Harvard system which also known as the alphabetical system and the Numeric system.

    ٍSister Noraina has shown you an example of the Numeric system, and the one that you have used in your OP is the Harvard system. You can find a brief guide on this page: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/studyin...ng/styles.aspx

    In Microsoft Word, there is an easy option to properly cite your sources. Whenever you write a sentence or a paragraph that you want to cite from somewhere, click on the References tab and select Insert Citation. And then click on Add New Source and enter all the details. You will find the option to select the Style on the same tab, beside the Insert Citation button. Most engineering colleges use the IEEE style, which is a form of numeric style of citation and references.

    After completing your research paper in Word, at the end of the document, click on the References tab once again and select Bibliography to insert the complete list of references.

    Yeah we are told to use Harvard Referencing in my previous University. However, I find it kinda bothersome to write every single information I refer to in parantheses because if I know I'm going to be using only one book there must be a way to state to the readers that "Hey I'm going to be using one book, so everything is from there" without repeatedly putting it on there because it becomes repetitive. Unlike if you refer to multiple books, it looks better and more organized. Jazakallahkhair for the tips.

    What will you be writing about? Topic of the article, I mean.
    Historic figures, I discovered an amazing number of them all of them virtually unknown to the common people who don't really look into history of this region(South East Asia). It's mind boggling, really. Though I would argue I'm against telling people because I might become lazy and not actually do it :X
