When you write an assignment or create any piece of academic work, you will be drawing upon information you have read in books, journal articles and other sources. You will be expected to acknowledge these sources through referencing.
The APA 6th ed. referencing style is a widely recognised style following the author/date referencing method also used in Harvard styles.
From September 2016, Sheffield Hallam University will be moving to using this system, and our team in the Adsetts Library have put together this helpful toolbox to explain the best practices for using it in your work. The guide includes videos, examples and guidance about using online tools and apps to reference correctly.
We’d like to warmly welcome all of our new and returning students, whether you’re coming to Sheffield to study, or are enrolling at one of our fantastic partnership institutions!
Here in the SHU GoGlobal team, September is one of our favourite times of the year as it’s when we get to see a lot of old – and a few new – faces!
We will be on hand to update you with anything happening across our two campuses, as well as events and achievements from our friends in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Botswana and Malaysia! If you have anything that you’d like to see posted by us for our readers to see, then please do get in touch.
You can like our page on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or email us and we’ll see what we can do.
Good luck to everyone starting the new semester!
