Assignments should usually incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion, and will be fully
referenced including a reference list.
The work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We strongly
recommend you to refer to the Academic Learning Skills materials available in the Moodle. For details please
click the link and download the file “Harvard
Referencing Workbook”. Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you
must develop and demonstrate.
We recommend a minimum of FIVE references unless instructed differently by your lecturer. Unless
specifically instructed otherwise by your lecturer, any paper with less than FIVE references may be failed. Work
that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the “Harvard Referencing Workbook” will
be penalised. Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count – as a general rule, you
may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
High quality work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We
recommend you work with your Academic Learning Support (ALS) site
( available in Moodle to ensure that you
reference correctly.
References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books,
chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the lecture notes.
We want to see evidence that you are capable of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers
determine students’ understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must
include the specific page number/s if shown in the original. Before preparing your assignment or own
contribution, please review this ‘YouTube’ video by clicking on the following link: Plagiarism: How to avoid it
You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal databases and which
can be accessed from the library homepage. Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopedias are
acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be overused – these should
constitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Additional information and literature can
be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as government departments, research
institutes such as the NHMRC, or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Legitimate organisations and government departments produce peer-reviewed reports and articles and are
therefore very useful and mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not
acceptable to use non-peer reviewed websites: Why can’t I just Google? (thanks to La Trobe University for this
