How do I reference / cite my sources using APA for my assignment?
Some subjects may require the use of the APA 6th edition standard when referencing and citing sources for assignments.
APA 6th edition is the referencing standard of the American Psychological Association. A guide to referencing sources with APA 6th edition can be found on the University of Notre Dame website: http://library.nd.edu.au/referencing/apa
This is needed to acknowledge the quotes and ideas of others when using them in an essay or report. Failure to do so is known as plagiarism, and must be avoided to ensure academic honesty.
Details on how to reference and cite using the APA 6th edition can be found on the Referencing section on the Library Portal.
