!Referencing is an important component of academic writing. Identifying the source of
arguments made is paramount to acknowledging others’ research work. When
referencing, students should be aware of the conventions required for citing intext
sources, the reference list, and what constitutes a suitable academic source.
The referencing applied in this assignment should contain at least eight academic
references, use quality academic references, and employ the Harvard system
when citing references within the body of the assignment and in the reference
list. The following paragraphs explain these issues in greater detail. !Citing in-text
• €The Harvard System of referencing places references in the
text, giving the author’s surname, !year of publication and page number, if
appropriate. Page numbers should only be provided in- !text when a quote
• €Footnoting should not be used to reference sources.
Footnoting should only be used to provide !additional information that
would otherwise disrupt the flow of the text or distract the reader.
• €Where a reference contains three or more authors, the first
time this reference is cited, all authors’ surnames must be stated (e.g. Ho,
Kummerow, & Iverson, 2007). Thereafter, the !citation contains the first
named author and then ‘et al.’ (e.g. Ho et al., 2007). !Reference list:
• €At the end of the assignment, the full details of only those
references cited in the assignment !text must be provided in the reference
• €References should be listed in alphabetical order by the first
author’s surname. !Academic references:
• €Students may cite the course prescribed textbook, but are
expected to move beyond this !resource.
• €Students should conduct their research of the literature from
academic journal articles and !academic books. A list of examples for such
journals can be found on in this Course Outline.
• €Academic references are articles and books which contain new
theoretical and empirical developments based on research studies. There
are several ways to determine whether the reference is an appropriate
academic source. First, academic articles are found in journals, not
professional and general magazines or newspapers. Second, academic
articles generally contain several sections: Abstract, introduction, review
of the literature/development of hypotheses, method, results,
analyses/discussion, and conclusion. Third, academic articles usually do
not contain pictures or photographs (not including diagrams, tables, and
graphs). !Finally, academic books offer new insights into the topic.
• €It is expected that the reference list of the student’s assignment
is not drawn solely from !textbooks. Textbooks are summaries of other
people’s work and do not contain new research !findings.
• €References sourced from textbooks (other the course
prescribed textbook), newspapers, !professional and general magazines,
internet sites, and the business press can be cited, but will not count
towards the minimum requirement of eight academic references.
