The mark given on your term paper, research paper or bachelor’s thesis partly depends on correct citation. But why should you cite at all? And what is the correct "method of citation"? In this webinar, you can work out answers to these and further fundamental questions revolving around the issue of citing. After the course, you will be able to differentiate between independent and dependent publications, know about different types of citation styles and can draw up a correct and well-structured bibliographic reference list.
