    I don't understand it!

    I think i'm going to be put infront of the plagerism panel by the end of this year :mad:

    Anyway if I quote what someone has said in a journal for example i quote G. Stanley Hall from a journal but the journal has been written by someone else what do i put in my reference, the journal or the book where the original quote came from? Does the even make sense? Please help!

    Thanks in advance

    Why is this in Psychology; every discipline uses Harvard referencing.

    Anyway, this site will do it for you: http://www.neilstoolbox.com/bibliogr...ator/index.htm

    And btw, you quote the book, not the journal. Only quote the journal if you have it as an original source. The book you're reading is paraphrasing a journal, it's not the journal itself, so you reference the book.

    Oh because we've been given this stlye in psychology wasn't sure if everyone used the same one.

    I don't have the book just the journal, so do i actually go find the book and reference that?

    Oh, no sorry, I thought you were reading a book which quoted a journal. I'm confused, what exactly are you quoting?

    Erm I'm reading a journal which quotes a well known psychologist, so im wondering whether i quote the journal or i quote the psychologist's book? The author of the journal is not the person im quoting however the quote is in the journal :s

    Well, if it were me I'd reference the quote to the journal, but attribute the quote (in my text) to the bloke who actually wrote it. As I said, you don't have the book yourself, so don't reference it.

    That's what I normally do anyway. :dontknow:

    So the situation is that there's a Journal (let's call it Journal), which contains an article (called 'Article') in issue X written by A. Andrews, who mentions Q. Quaddock's quote ("blah blah blah") on page Y?

    What Andrews should have done is referenced where he got that quote from, in which case you can generally use the same reference as him (trusting him not to quote misleadingly). If he hasn't, I'd go for something like: Quaddock, Q. in Andrews, A. (2010). 'Article'. Journal. X, pp.Y.

    Note that, unless psychology is very different to everything else, you'd be referring to an article within a journal: the journal itself doesn't have an author, it has an editor.

    Look no further. Use the link below, it will enable Word to reference in Harvard style. But, you gotta know how to use Word referencing obviously - after that its a piece of a cake and a real time saver. Hopw this helps

    Yes. Psychology journals use APA referencing.

    Pretty much every department in the UK uses APA instead of Harvard for this reason.
