Proper Referencing in IBO/QEP Essays and Lab Reports


What do you need to reference

What do you need to reference?

  • Your job is to conduct research in order to form an argument for or against the use of plastics in our society.

  • You want to collect evidence to support your argument and this evidence is what needs to be cited.

  • If you can show that others in the world agree with your point of view, then you are strengthening your argument.


Common knowledge

Common Knowledge

  • Such knowledge does not need to be referenced.

  • For example:

    • Plastics are widely used across the world for a variety of reasons.

  • If the statement read:

    • Canada’s plastics industry is one that is worth $17.6 Billion dollars. (Canadian Plastics Industry Association, 2013)  Reference!


In text citations and bibliographies

In text citations and Bibliographies

  • In text citations are when you reference the source in the body of your essay.

    • Ex: Canada’s plastics industry is one that is worth $17.6 Billion dollars (Canadian Plastics Industry Association, 2013). Thus, the plastics industry is clearly of economic importance to this country.

  • A bibliography is a list of references provided at the end of your paper.


Apa vs mla

APA vs. MLA

  • Scientific papers usually include APA citations.

  • You may choose the style of referencing that you prefer as long as you remain consistent throughout your paper.

  • Visit easybib.com or bibme.org to help you reference properly.


Images

Images

  • You should include diagrams and images to strengthen your arguments.

  • These should be provided in an appendix.

  • For images and diagrams from the internet, provide a URL after the image.


Example

Example

Figure 1: End Use markets for plastics produced in Canada.

http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/plastics-plastiques.nsf/eng/pl01383.html

Note: The images selected must relate to the content of your essay. Therefore in your essay you would direct the reader to figure 1 in the appendix, and you would explain why this diagram is relevant.
