Here we present another style of citation approved and used by Curtin University Library. A reference or citation consists of elements that allow the reader to trace the original book, article or website you have consulted and cited.

Referencing is a standardised method of acknowledging sources of information and ideas that you have used in your assignment in a way that uniquely identifies their source. Direct quotations, facts and figures, as well as ideas and theories, from both published and unpublished works, must be referenced.

There are many acceptable forms of referencing. This information sheet provides a brief guide to the APA referencing style with examples for in-text citations and for creating the Reference List.
