You may need to research and source information for your assessments. Information sources can include:
- journal articles, papers or magazines
- legislation and policy information or extracts
- internal procedures (for example, agency procurement procedures)
- websites and online resources.
Any information and ideas that you have used for your assessment, whether published or not, must be acknowledged.
How to reference your sources
It may be as simple as making a general reference to your source—for example, 'following the requirements of the Queensland Procurement Policy, …'.
Or you can reference a specific section or piece of information—for example, 'In accordance with the Queensland Procurement Policy 2008, Section 2.3, agencies are …'.
You may also be required to provide a reference list where multiple sources are used. Use the Curtin University Guide to Harvard Referencing for more detailed information.
