Welcome to the fifth video in our series on Referencing, in Essay Writer!
All external information requires you to contextualise and relate it to your topic.
Quotations are no different.
A quote, or exact copy of someone else's work, will detail its originator.
A paraphrase is an inexact copy: to summarise, reframe, or update a quote.
This video's topic is: How, what, and when do you quote?
1. How to Quote?
You can use text from a web page, local software, or elsewhere in a Spark-Space document.
It's as simple as 'Ctrl + C' to copy and 'Ctrl + V' to paste. (Or type the quote yourself.)
You will be prompted to add the information as a bibliographic reference.
Press 'Yes', then control-click the new reference.
As always, you must verify and correct all reference details for the material.
2. What to Quote?
Explain how a quotation supports or weakens an argument and, in some cases, why you have used it.
You should add your own interpretation or qualifiers for each source and material you use.
Ensure you use generally reliable sources, and relevant, accurate material.
Consider how you prefer the information you receive to be filtered.
Uphold this standard in your work too, where appropriate.
3. When to Quote?
To present someone else's idea just as you found it, you need to quote them.
Depending on purpose and topic, it may not be possible to use unedited quotes.
For example, you may need to change individual names for privacy or security.
You could also use '[sic]' to indicate an error in the source material.
This could be from typos, archaic spelling, or weak reasoning.
Next, we are moving on to the two-part 'Importing from Databases'.
Part 'A' will use PubMed and EndNote (Web) reference lists.
And then Part 'B' will cover our Zotero add-in.
Thank you for watching.
We hope you found this helpful!
Let us know how you find referencing.
We're always happy to learn about your success.
