Write a summary and include AND PROVIDE AN IN-TEXT CITATION A summary involves identifying the key points of the resource and writing these up in your own words. You may keep some of the same language, such as key terms, but you should paraphrase so that you are not using the same sentences that are in the resource. As this is a summary, you are not required for this assignment to criticise the resource or discuss your own opinions or experiences. Here’s how to approach the task: 1. Take notes from the resource Write up key points from the resource focusing on the main points that are being made. Make a note of key phrases that may help you extract important points. 2. Write up your notes into a summary of several paragraphs Once you have your notes, you then need to write them up in your own words. Start by using the following as your title: ‘Summary of: Pakistani and Indian patients’ experience of Scottish diabetes services: a qualitiative study’. Under this title, write up your notes into sentences and then paragraphs. You may want to organise the paragraphs in your summary so that they follow the flow of the section. Don’t give paragraphs headings as this will break up the flow of your work. When you have finished writing your paragraphs, revisit them and compare them to the source you are summarising. Make sure that they are not using the exact same sentences as the source (see Section 3.4 on Plagiarism) and you have written in your own words. 3. Provide an in-text reference Your first sentence or two should introduce the resource you are summarising and you can provide your in-text citation here. An in-text citation is how to communicate that you are using other people’s ideas or referring to their work. You will notice that when the author of the section you are summarising refers to other people’s research, this is cited. You need to do something similar, which tells the reader details about the material you are summarising. Typically, the in-text citation includes a name or organisation, and date of publication. At the end of your summary, you should provide a word count. In addition to the in-text citation, at the end of your assignment you need to provide a full reference for the resource. The full reference for the resource is: Lawton, J., Ahmad, N., Hallowell, N., Hanna, L. and Douglas, M. (2006) ‘Resource 1: Pakistani and Indian patients’ experiences of Scottish diabetes services: a qualitative study’, in The Open University (2015) K101 Resources, Milton Keynes, The Open University.
