Referencing is important as it communicates to your assessor that you have accessed appropriate sources and research during your assignment. For more information on the importance of referencing, please access this link: https://federation.edu.au/current-students/learning-and-study/online-help-with/referencing
Different study areas use different forms of referencing (e.g., Harvard style, Chicago style). However, in health sciences and education, the commonly used referencing style is APA (American Psychological Association). For specific information about APA referencing, please access this link: http://federation.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/313328/FEDUNI-GENERAL-GUIDE-TO-REFERENCING-2016-EDITION_ed.pdf and go to PAGE 9.
