You must have heard about Bibliography when creating your school, or college assignments and even used it. Whenever we used to create some assignment then at the bottom of the same, we used to write the bibliography of the same. Means, the reference to all those sources from which we took help for creating that particular assignment so that the reader can know about the source of the assignment and if needed then the reader can also look for the information with the help of the references which we included in our assignment in the bibliography section.
Bibliography comes quite important when writing the thesis. It becomes essential to keep track of all the sources you took help from. You have to mention about the original work which inspired you in completing your project. All the sources which you considered during your research that influenced your ideas and facts should come under bibliography of your report, assignment, thesis etc. Bibliography helps to add legitimacy to your writings.
But you can’t simply create bibliography just by writing the name of the book, website etc which is the source of your writing as there are some formats and rules for writing a bibliography. Like if you want to add a book to your bibliography then you have to write in following way, Author’s Last Name, Author’s First Name. (Publication Year) Title. Publisher’s City: Publisher. Page numbers according to American Psychological Association. Same way there is a particular format to include an article, website etc. in your bibliography.
So, yes, it becomes a little difficult to create the bibliography with all these details and according to the international standards. It would also be quite time-consuming to first find all the required details of the source.
