How would I reference this?

    • Thread Starter

    I found this essay/piece of work but how would I reference it, preferably using Harvard referencing. Thank you in advance!**

    Take the authors, year of publication, title, etc...

    Eckert, P. and McConnell-Ginet, S. (1992). Communities of practice: Where language, gender, and power all live. 1st ed. [ebook] p.[insert page numbers]. Available at: [Accessed 11 Oct. 2016].

    Make sure to insert the page numbers of where you quoted the material above, or just remove the entire "p.[]" if you just used the whole thing.

    For the future you can use this tool to automatically reference any material. Use the E-book/PDF form to cite PDFs (under the "more" tab), manually enter in the authors and title and the website will do it for you!
