Summarising the Work of Others

Sep 8th 2015 at 5:12 AM

Summarising or briefly describing the work of another person.

Where the author name is not cited directly - put authors’ name and the year of publication in brackets at the end of the summary. e.g.

The 1980 study of the speech of witnesses in Carolina court cases investigated whether gender and weakness or lack or power should be conflated in this way.

Where the author name is cited directly and is part of the sentence -put the year of publication in brackets after the author’s name. Cases investigated whether gender and weakness or lack or power should be conflated in this way. Note: For summaries (brief descriptions of work) and for indirect quotations some tutors may ask you to also include a page number. If in doubt, always check.

Paraphrasing the Work of Others

Paraphrasing the work of another person or putting their theories or ideas in your words and in your own style must be cited. e.g. The original:

Enormous harm had been done to America, and the country was grieving. Many Americans were angry and vengeful. The paraphrased version:

America had suffered greatly and was damaged and sorrowful. A great number of the people wanted revenge.

This is a straight forward list of studies/reports/research in a particular subject field. e.g. Further studies which have pursued the issue of women’s language or powerless language are Leet-Pellegrini (1980), Beattie (1981) and Woods (1989).
