ABP Study and Research Guide

This guide will help you with your studies in the Bachelor of Design, MSD and beyond.

Why reference?

In your work at university you are expected to:

  • acknowledge the authors and creators of the ideas and material that has informed your work, and
  • show that you have used reputable sources of information. 

These acknowledgments are normally presented in the format of a particular referencing style.

If you fail to acknowledge the work of others correctly, you may be guilty of plagiarism, even if you have done so unintentionally. 

The University of Melbourne produces a wide range of resources to ensure that you understand the requirements of referencing, including: 

Referencing styles

Re:cite is the University of Melbourne Library's guide to referencing. It includes general style notes for a number of referencing styles and provides guidelines showing how to format different types of sources, such as books and journal articles.

The ABP Library provides additional support showing how to format other source types frequently used in ABP / MSD, such as images and maps, for two referencing styles: 

  •  APA (American Psychological Association style)
  •  Chicago 17A (Chicago style with footnotes)

Referencing: APA

APA

APA 6th edition style consists of author and date in brackets (Author, Date) after the cited text within the body of the work, and a bibliography at the end of the paper. 

 

Examples:

In text

Regularly published proceedings (ike a journal) can be treated as a journal article.

 

The Chicago Manual of Style does not provide any guidelines for data sets.

The essential information in citing a dataset is:

  • "Author: Name(s) of each individual or organizational entity responsible for the creation of the dataset."*
  • "Title: Complete title of the dataset, including the edition or version number, if applicable."*
  • "Date of Publication: Year the dataset was published or disseminated."*
  • "Publisher and/or Distributor: Organizational entity that makes the dataset available by archiving, producing, publishing, and/or distributing the dataset."*
  • "Electronic Location or Identifier: Web address or unique, persistent, global identifier used to locate the dataset (such as a DOI). Append the date retrieved if the title and locator are not specific to the exact instance of the data you used."*

The Chicago Manual of Style Online 17 recommends the following when dealing with images:

Information about paintings, photographs, sculptures, or other works of art can usually be presented in the text rather than in a note or bibliography. If a note or bibliography entry is needed, list the artist, a title (in italics), and a date of creation or completion, followed by information about the medium and the location of the work. For works consulted online, add a URL.

  • Images are not usually included in the bibliography. Instead, they have a caption, and the full citation goes into a list of figures, which is included after the bibliography.
  • Give each image a figure number, numbering them in the order they appear in your work. You may abbreviate figure as fig.
  • The list of figures includes the full citations for each image, in the order they appear in your work.
  • The caption should include the figure number, name of creator (if known), title of the image, and date (if known).

Incorporating sources

You can incorporate information from other sources into your own work using direct quotes, paraphrases and summaries.

A direct quote uses the exact words of another author. 

 

A paraphrase express another author's idea in your own words. 

 

A summary provides a short statement expressing the main point of another author's idea in your own words. 

Sheehan, N.W. (2011). Indigenous knowledge and respectful design: an evidence-based approach. Design Issues 27(4), 68-80. 

 

For some tips to help you rewrite the ideas of other authors in your own words, watch Paraphrasing ideas in your writing (video)
For more information about integrating sources in your writing, refer to Incorporating sources in academic writing (pdf)

Your voice

In addition to drawing on a range of academic sources in your work, it's important to include your own thoughts and ideas. 

You should use 'your voice' in your academic writing to indicate to readers which ideas are yours, and provide your critical evaluation of the ideas of other authors. 

One way to express your own voice is to directly praise an author's work (e.g. by describing it as 'influential'). 

 

Alternatively, you could note the limitations of a piece of work (e.g. 'the application of this approach ... in other contexts may meet different challenges'). 

 

Sheehan, N.W. (2011). Indigenous knowledge and respectful design: an evidence-based approach. Design Issues 27(4), 68-80. 

 

Another option is to compare the findings of different authors, perhaps identifying which piece of work is more relevant to your topic. 

Keep in mind that the strength of your critical evaluation also depends on how you support your ideas with additional evidence or logical reasoning, not only on how you express your ideas

To discover more ways to distinguish your ideas from the ideas of other writers, watch Critical literacy (video) or refer to Critical literacy (pdf)
For more ways to develop your own voice, refer to Voice in academic writing (pdf)
For a collection of many words and phrases that could be used to express your voice, refer to the following sections of the University of Manchester Academic Phrasebank:
