Tips for students of information technology

APA Referencing for FIT Students

The FIT Style Guide has a module on Referencing.

The importance of citing and referencing

Presentation of ideas developed by researching and analysing existing knowledge requires acknowledgement of sources of information so that:

  • readers can find the original sources
  • the authors of the original sources are given credit for their work
  • the writer's own research is clear
  • the work has credibility

You must acknowledge what you have read to maintain academic integrity

Guides for citing and referencing

Have a look at the Library Guide for APA referencing.

Students may find it helpful to use the Monash University Library Citing and Referencing tutorial to obtain guidance on acknowledging sources using a number of the most well known styles.
