I hate them. They are the bane of my existence.

I'm working from a source that is from a selection of essays reviewed and commented on by one author. When quoting or referencing do I just put the author of the source and the publication or individually put each essay?

I should know this really blush

I think you would put each essay and then the book that it was in? I find this website very useful, you have to log in but your uni might have access via athens

You need to cite the author of the essay, the name of the essay, the book you found it in and the overall editor, as well as year and page numbers depending on your style of referencing. HTH smile

Thanks. I've written most of the essay and realised I've just used outside sources not the ou textbooks confused.

Well, they did say to find our own sources. Not sure this was what that meant though!

Depending on the course, they should accept non-OU sources as they like you to show some initiative :D
