CQUniversity referencing guides

CQUniversity's Referencing Policy for Undergraduate Courses states that each School will nominate a referencing style to be used by students in the School's units. To find out which referencing style you should use in your unit, read the assessment section of your unit profile.

The styles nominated by the various Schools are:

  • Harvard Referencing Style abridged guide, based on: Commonwealth of Australia 2002, Style manual for authors, editors and printers, 6th edn, rev. Snooks & Co., John Wiley & Sons, Brisbane. Please note that the document attached here is the Term 1 2017 Edition which supersedes the Term 3 2016 Edition.
  • Addendum to the 2015 Harvard Editions for students who printed or purchased prior to the 2016 updated version.
  • American Psychological Association (APA) abridged guide updated Term 2 2016 based on: American Psychological Association. (2010).

The AGLC provides Australia with a uniform system of legal citation. You can download the view-only PDF version here or order one online.
  • Vancouver Style Referencing is a generic term for a style of referencing widely used in the health sciences.
    Vancouver referencing requires citations to sources in the text to be indicated by the use of a number. A numbered reference list then provides full details of the corresponding in-text reference.
    There is no official manual of the Vancouver style, but this guide is modelled on the US National Library of Medicine's style guide Citing Medicine: The NLM Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers (2nd edition). This 2014 edition guide is provided with permission from the University of Queensland.

To find out which referencing style you should use in your unit, read the assessment section of your unit profile.
