Praise For…

Cite Right is a valuable resource for a varied readership. Secondary and post-secondary school instructors will find the book helpful as a resource when preparing lessons on the differences between various citation styles or on justifications for the use of citations at all. In chapter 11, Lipson addresses frequently asked questions about citing in general that may be particularly useful to instructors. Writers who must use a new citation style will also benefit from the ease with which this text can be read. For editors, this book is an invaluable tool for addressing issues of unfamiliar citation styles in authors’ work.”
— Summer Cowley

"Charles Lipson has again provided an invaluable tool for researchers who must cite sources in their writing. Although he directly addresses students, experienced practitioners will also find the summary tables of citation styles helpful, particularly because requirements within specific fields are continuously changing...If you’ve enjoyed consulting the second edition of Cite Right, it’s time to get the affordable third edition. Like me, you’ll want to keep it within easy reach of your keyboard."
