Sydney Study Centre Library: Referencing


Referencing is about acknowledging the information sources used in your work and giving credit to the original owner of an idea. At Charles Sturt University we use APA, version 7 referencing style. Failure to correctly cite and reference could result in unintentional plagiarism.


There are different ways to reference: 

- Download Endnote from Charles Sturt University Library or download an open source software from the Internet such as Zotero, Mendeley, ReadCube, and send the citation from Primo.

- Look for the Cite icon on the publishers pages. Select APA referencing style. Copy the reference link, highlight it, copy it, and then paste it into a Word document.

- Manually learn how to cite.

The interactive online tool, Academic Referencing Tool (ART) gives examples of APA7 referencing style for a number of commonly used sources.
