References must be provided whenever you use someone else’s opinions, theories, data or organisation of material. You need to reference information from books, articles, DVDs, the World Wide Web, other print or electronic sources and personal communications. A reference is required if you: quote (use someone else’s exact words) copy (use figures, tables or structure) paraphrase (convert someone else’s ideas into your own words) summarise (give a brief account of someone else’s ideas). How to reference There are two parts to the APA system of referencing: 1. The author and the date are referred to in the text or main body of your writing (called in-text referencing or citing). 2. All of the resources referred to in the body of the writing are included in the reference list at the end of the assignment. All information is included in this list: author, date, title of publication, and publication and/or retrieval information. When you reference sources of information in the text of your assignment—regardless of whether you quote, paraphrase or summarise—you should include: the author’s surname (family name) the year of publication page numbers when directly quoting or closely paraphrasing an author’s words correct punctuation and spacing. Your reference list includes full details of all sources you have referred to in the assignment in alphabetical order. Paraphrasing Paraphrasing is putting someone else’s ideas into your own words.
