We recommendyou work with your Academic Learning Support (ALS) site available in Moodle to ensure that you referencecorrectly. ( are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chaptersfrom edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the lecturer notes. We wantto see evidence that you are capable of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determinestudents’ understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include thespecific page number/s if shown in the original.PLAGIARISM: HOW TO AVOID ITYou can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal databases and whichcan be accessed from the library homepage. Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopedias areacceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be overused – these shouldconstitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Additional information and literature canbe used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as government departments, research institutessuch as the NHMRC, or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimateorganisations and government departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore veryuseful and mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use nonpeerreviewed websites: Why can’t I just Google? (Thanks to La Trobe University for this video).
