Referencing acknowledges the sources that you use to write your essay or assignment paper.
In-text citations are used throughout your writing to acknowledge the sources of your information. The full references for the citations are then listed at the end of your assignment paper in the References list.
It is important to first consult your unit outline, lecturer or tutor for the preferred citation style for each unit you undertake.

About the APA style
The American Psychological Association (APA) style is a widely used author-date system of referencing or bibliographic citation. This guide covers basic explanations and examples for the most common types of citations used by students. This guide is based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition) which is available at all UWS libraries. If you are unable to find the referencing example you require in this guide, more detailed information and examples can be found in the above publication.
Current information can also be obtained via the Internet from the official APA Style website http://www.apastyle.org which includes tutorials, a blog and FAQs. Corrected Sample Papers from the Publication Manual can also be found on the APA website. For further support, please contact UWS library: Phone 02 98525353
In-text citation: Referencing sources within the text
Throughout the text of your paper you need to acknowledge the sources used in your writing. Whenever you present a statement of evidence such as a quote, or when you use someone else's ideas, opinions or theories in your own words (paraphrasing), you must acknowledge your sources. Some examples of how to cite sources within your paper are given below. University of Western Sydney Library APA Referencing Style Guide
