Referencing Guide

Referencing Guide

Failing to correctly reference information in an assignment or piece of research equates to plagiarism. Notes should be made for all research assignments and it is essential to always record the details of the sources that are used for this research.

The details of these sources will then be used to make a reference list or bibliography. All entries in this list must be in alphabetical order of the author. Remember an author can be an individual, more than one individual, an organisation, company or government institution.

An example of a reference list:

All facts and ideas that are not the student’s own ideas must be referenced. Specific ideas and direct quotes that are taken from a specific section of the source must be acknowledged using the author, date of publication of the source and the year of publication e.g. (Smith, 1997, p. 33). General ideas that are contained throughout the source only require the author’s name and year of publication e.g. (Smith, 1997).
