Chapter 11 On reflective referencing
Restricted access

Referencing can be seen as a mode of conversation - among academics, but also with wider audiences. Like in a polite conversation, it is good to remember what others have said, no matter whether or not the present author agrees with them. It is also polite to provide relevant information about other speakers, and on the context of their utterances. And, like other polite conversations, academic conversations have rules of their own, which in time change, but sometimes also return. This chapter provides a brief history of referencing, and some of its present rules.
