Sydney Study Centre Library: Referencing

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.
