Dissertation - Bibliography
The text below is an extract from the MSc handbook for students
It is crucial to properly acknowledge other people's work. The bibliography usually consists of a list of publications in alphabetical order of the author's names. Each entry contains at least the author's names, the title of the publication, the journal, publisher or website, the year of publication and in case of a journal article, the volume and the page numbers of the entire article. It is unusual to quote verbatim in mathematics (apart from definitions, lemmas and theorems), and one usually refers to the entire article if one is using a result of it. Sometimes when citing long articles or books it is helpful if one refers to a particular theorem. If you use material from websites you must reference the sites.
The supervisor will give feedback on your citing, referencing and the bibliography if she/he is given a draft.
