With one of the assignments being a 2000 word essay a lecture was given based on referencing.From this I picked up the basics.


  • Demonstrated the integrity of writers.
  • Acknowledges the work of others.
  • Readers chance to identify.

You only reference stuff that actually influenced your work.

Paraphrase pieces.

When referencing you have to go by a set style for a place.


  • Authors name
  • Title of book or book chapter
  • Date publication
  • Publisher & location
  • Page number

Place numbers in text for where referencing if sourcing at the end of text.

Notes – references

If it is the editor and not the author – reference the chapter.

Also use title of chapter before book title.

Book title goes in italics

Chapters in the book go in alphabetical order.

Don’t use brackets.

At the end have a list of references
