How do you reference quotes from a guest speaker?

In APA format, cite as personal communication with the speaker's name; then, in parentheses, include the words "personal communication" and the date that the interview or speech took place.

EXAMPLE: A. Jones (personal communication, April 15, 2010) stated that train travel between major cities less than 100 miles apart would increase at least 10% over the next three years.

Note: Personal communications, including lectures and unpublished speeches, are not cited on the reference page because no printed version exists for the reader to access.

A bibliography is a list of articles, books and other written materials from which you (or another author) quote or mention in an essay or article.

How do you write a sexual harassment warning to an employee?

Answer

If you are the one who is being sexually harrassed and want it to stop you could write a letter to the person and tell them that you find their comments lewd and out of place, that you aren't the type of person they think you are and if this kind of harrassmet continues you will take it to the boss. If you are a boss and want to warn one of your employee's then I wouldn't bother with a written letter, I'd call them in my office away from prying ears of other employee's and lay down the law, that this kind of behavour isn't accepted by this company and should it continue, it will be grounds for dismissal. IF it doesn't stop then fire the person.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between appendix and annex?

What is the difference between an annex and an appendix. Which if the proper usage between the two in a publication? As I understand it, an annex should be used where information (which would normally make sense in the main body of the document) is placed at the end of the document for reasons of clarity. An appendix is a document can be used to supplement the main text. In a nutshell, and this is how I remember it, if the annex/appendix can be read in its own right as a stand-aolone document, then it is classed as an appendix, if not, then it is classed as an annex. HTH Tony So an Annex can have an Appendix but an Appendix cannot have an Annex I would have thought the otherway around, i.e an apendix can have an annex (just as any stand alone document can have an annex) As a policy writer here's my view: An appendix is a part of a document that doesn't really have a place within the body or is an operational tool that is referenced in the document an appendix and should not be able to stand alone. If it is you should consider including it directly into the document. An annex is another document all together (often called stand alone) but has direct relevance to your document. Usually in the policy world it is assumed that appendices are written or modified/adapted by the writer and an annex is was written by someone else. For example, if I were writing a regional preparedness plan and I developed/modified some worksheets as tools to assist in regional decisions that would be an appendix, but since the county preparedness plans have direct relevance to my regional one and I referenced them, I would include them as an annex (they were written by someone else and are stand alone documents.) So to refer to the preceding answer: the annex can (and usually does in the policy world) have an appendix; however, an appendix isn't stand alone and will never have an annex. Here's how I remember it: In an appendix you are appending the document (adding detail, better explanation, or visual references) In an Annex you are including something that was already there, much like land gets annexed. Remember to include any authors of original material, even if you modified it, in the references and get permission for copy written material. CCP Annex supplements the mail document where as the Appendix supplements the annex . for example Annex A of letter dated X . Where as appendex is written as Annedix 1 of Annex A of letter dated X Annexes can be issued seperately where as Appendix can not be issued seperately. Obaid

What is the function of a bibliography?

A bibliography lists what sources you used for your work (especially essays). The uses are...

-Proving to teachers and whatnot that you did actually do some research

-Prevent some forms or plagiarism

-Allow people to check the sources you used, to check the credibility or to further their own research

Bibliographies also test your ability to find enough information to make a bibliography, as well as your patience when you type all the citations out (and put them in alphabetical order, if you're forced to).

What is the difference between a bibliography and reference?

Bibliography is listing all the materials that have been consulted while writing an essay or a book. References, on the other hand, are those that have been referenced in your article or book.

You might have consulted a lot of books, essays and websites for writing something. Though you might have referred to these while preparing a write up, the content of these might not have been included in the actual text. This is what refers to bibliography. References are those that are directly included in your actual text.

Should a works cited bibliographic page list works in the order that the writer quoted paraphrased or referenced them in a research paper?

If you're going by MLA guidelines (and I'm assuming that you are) then your works cited page should be listed alphabetically by author last name.

Plagiarism

Do unique ideas of other authors need to be documented the way exact quotations are?

Whenever you summarize, paraphrase, or directly quote someone else's language and/or ideas you need to cite them. Failure to do so can lead to charges of plagiarism. Different disciplines require different methods for acknowledging these influences via citations; typical formats include Chicago, MLA, and APA citation styles. Your local bookstore or library should have a copy of these style manuals.
