When creating not only bachelor, but also any other final or seminar work, it is necessary to quote all the material taken over according to the specified citation standards. The most commonly used citation standard is ISO 690, but either a revised version or its own citation standard can be applied to each faculty. It is always necessary to study this information before you start writing bachelor or other work, and then use a single quote method across the entire text.
Method of citation in the bachelor thesis: With regard to the fact that the bachelor thesis is quite extensive text, often shortened citations are used by footnotes. The footnote contains only information about the author’s surname, title of the book or article, the year of issue and the page number from which the citation is taken.
How to recognize a quote from a paraphrase in a bachelor thesis? If you use a text in the text that is literally taken from the work of another author, it is necessary to mark it as a direct quote. By direct citation we mean the differentiation of the text in italics from another text, and its separation by quotation marks. Again, we quote the author, publication and page number from which we received the text. There is a general rule that no final thesis should contain more than 10% of direct quotes. If we need to take over the ideas of other authors in the bachelor thesis, so-called paraphrase is used more often, in which we reformulate the text of another author in our own words, but keep its meaning and main ideas. For this text, we are again putting the source.
In the case of a direct quote, and in the case of paraphrase, it is always necessary to provide adequate resources, otherwise your work could be labeled as plagiarism. The introduction of resources is necessary not only for the texts taken, but also for pictures, tables and graphs. If you do not know what to do with quotes, please contact us, we will help you!
