APA 7th Referencing


This library guide is designed to help you reference the sources of information you use for your written work, such as essays and reports. There are many referencing styles; at William Angliss Institute, we use the APA style. The APA 7 style requires both in-text citations within your work, and full citations provided in a reference list at the end.

The information within this library guide is based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Seventh Edition, APA Style website and blog. Advice has also been supplied by APA style experts.

What is Referencing?

Referencing provides a standard way to acknowledge the sources that you use within your written work. It is an important element of academic writing, and a skill that you will be expected to use within your work at William Angliss Institute. The person who is marking your work should be able to identify exactly how your ideas have been formed. If you do not reference, you may be plagiarising (using other people’s ideas and words as if they are your own). This is considered a serious offence at William Angliss Institute.
