Infographic - how to make referencing easy


When preparing an assignment be aware that you are expected to

  • Provide a list of references which were used in completing the work (Bibliography or Reference List). This list appears at the end of your assignment.
  • Provide references in the text to any material you quote, paraphrase or summarise (In-Text Referencing).
  • The most commonly used systems for referencing are the APA and Harvard (Author-Date) Referencing Systems. Check with your teacher if they require you to use a different referencing system.
