Brief asides – writing academic articles, problem 1

HeaddeskPeople: learn from me.

If there is EVER, any possibility, EVER, that you will use your work (whether dissertation or essay) to construct an article, write down every single bit of bibliographical detail that is required. NOT just what your uni requires!

The article I am now writing wants the name of publisher in all the refs. This is an article springing from my undergrad dissertation. A dissertation that only used the place of publisher.

I am now faced with going back and redoing all the refs… my undergrad dissertation had 115 footnotes, and the bibliography was eight … read it and weep … eight pages long. Dear god. Kill me now…
