Reference correctly


Finally, when you have planned ahead‌, recorded source details, and taken appropriate notes, you need to make sure that you reference correctly.

There are two components to citing another person's work:

  • Text

    "The novel feature of the structure is the manner in which the two chains are held together" (1).

  • Reference

    1. Watson J, Crick F, Molecular structure of nucleic acids: a structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid. Nature. 1953; 171: 737-738.

The citations and references must correspond exactly. References should be cited and listed in a consistent way. The easiest way to do this is to use a package like RefWorks.
