Get started with our referencing guides. You will find examples of how to quote and paraphrase in the text of your assignment and format reference lists.
Four steps of referencing
Referencing is how you acknowledge the information sources used in your work and demonstrates your understanding of the topic. Accurate and consistent referencing is an important part of academic culture and shows that you are acting with academic integrity.
Introduction to Academic Integrity
This short 10 minute module aims to inform you of the basics of Academic Integrity. It is important that you are aware of the academic standards required of you while studying at Griffith University.
Referencing information is provided as a guide only and is based on the official manual or other authoritative sources where available. Users are directed to confirm specific referencing requirements with their course convenor and to consult the manual directly for more information.
