About this book

Thousands of students have turned to veteran teacher Charles Lipson for no-nonsense advice on how to cite sources properly - and avoid plagiarism - when writing their research papers. This new edition of his book "Cite Right", the popular overview of all major systems of citation, has been updated to reflect the most current versions of Chicago, MLA, APA, and other styles, and to discuss citation methods in the rapidly changing context of the Internet, digital publishing, and e-books. Best of all, it's very easy to use.

Lipson first explains why it is so important to use citations - and to present them accurately - in research writing. He then outlines the main citation styles students and researchers are likely to encounter in their academic work: Chicago; MLA; APA; AAA (anthropology and ethnography); CSE (biological sciences); AMA (medical sciences); ACS (chemistry); physics, astrophysics, and astronomy; and, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. New sections have been added on IEEE and ASCE styles, often used in engineering. Each style is presented simply and clearly with examples drawn from a wide range of source types crossing all disciplines, from the arts and humanities to the sciences and medicine.

The second edition has also been updated to include a discussion of the merits and pitfalls of citation software, as well as new examples showing proper citation style for video blogs, instant messages, social networking sites, and other forms of digital media. Based on deep experience in the academic trenches, this thoroughly revised edition is intended to appeal to anyone - student, professional, or academic - who needs an efficient, authoritative guide for citing sources across a wide range of disciplines.

This book is a real bargain and an excellent addition to the libraries of editors, proofreaders, and technical communicators, as well as students. -Technical Communication"
