  1. Author’s name cited in the text

In general, when writing for a professional publication, it is good practice to make reference to other relevant published work. This view has been supported in the work of Cormack (1994).


Cormack (1994, pp.32-33) states that ‘when writing for a professional readership, writers invariably make reference to already published works’.


  1. Author’s name not cited directly in the text

Making reference to published work appears to be characteristic of writing for a professional audience (Cormack, 1994).
