Review quote

'This is a highly useful little book in a very user-friendly and engaging format... The book clearly outlines various referencing styles, provides clear and visually pleasing guides to exactly how academic referencing works, and how it would look on the page... The complex and important issue of plagiarism is very clearly discussed, and the way that anti-plagiarism software works is made very clear. There's an impeccable set of examples and resources in the back of the book, giving it a punch beyond its hundred and 12 pages!' - Amazon reviewshow more
