Referencing help

When you have included information from published sources in your work, you must acknowledge this information fully and accurately by:

  • identifying your sources, in a brief format, in the body of your written work (referred to as an in-text citation)
  • providing a detailed list of your sources in an alphabetical list at the end of your work (known as a reference list).

There are a number of officially accepted formats that can be used to reference your work. The University preferred referencing style is APA 6th. However, some departments may prefer another style, and it is wise to check with your academic tutors whether your subject area uses another preferred system.

Referencing help is provided through online reference builders to help you format your APA 6th references correctly.
