2.2 Acknowledging Your Source
There are different methods for acknowledging sources. Ask your teacher which method is preferred. If this is not possible, use the method which you see most often in the materials that you are reading for your study. Once you have chosen a method it is important to remain consistent.
2.2.1 Using footnotes or endnotes
Place a small number (usually slightly higher than the word it follows) in the text and list your sources by number either at the foot of the page or the end of the text. The numbers must run consecutively through the text.
2.2.2 Reference in the text
In the text you acknowledge a source by giving the author's family name and the date of publication. Readers can then check this in a references list at the end of your writing which contains the full publication information.
