Citing your sources

Citing your sources accurately, responsibly, and with integrity is an essential part of study and research at the university level.  It encompasses the process of clearly and consistently acknowledging all the information sources you have used by:

  • Providing citations in your writing where you have quoted or paraphrased another's words or ideas, and,
  • Providing a reference list or bibliography at the end of your piece of writing.


Discover from your lecturer which referencing style you are required to use in your academic writing. Griffith Library's Referencing guides contain referencing and in-text examples for a variety of referencing styles including APA6 and APA7.
