Throughout AusEmade we provide links to other related and relevant online information.

In addition, where an article has information that was sourced, we use a number of methods to acknowledge, cite and provide a reference back to the original source. Citation methods are those used in Australia and may differ to those used in other countries.

As well as the direct link back to another website, we also use 'Footnote' and 'Source' to define external resources.

This website uses the following methods of referencing:

  • Source:
    this source uses the meta tags 'source' and 'sourceleft'
    This is mainly found following an article which is sourced from a specific resource, usually another website.
     
  • Source:
    this source uses the meta tags 'footnote-source' and is preceded by a single line across the page. This 'source' is found at the bottom of the webpage, often referencing more than one resource. This format also uses a mixture of 'footnote' style citation and web citation such as used by Wikipedia.
     
  • APA style:
    this is our preferred form of citation when referencing information from Wikipedia. They provide a number of styles for citing information and make it easy for the user by providing a link in the toolbox called 'Cite this page', which provides the citation information in their available formats. You just need to choose a format, highlight the citation, copy and paste into your website.

In addition, following are some of the more traditional methods used in Australia:

Footnotes

Footnotes are numbered consecutively, throughout an entire essay. They do not start again on each page. They are placed at the bottom of the page, where the page content makes reference to the footnote. The number is linked from the main content to the relevant same-numbered footnote.

• Books
When a book is mentioned, the footnote must include the name of the author(s), the full title of the book (underlined or italicized), the city in which the book was published, the year of the publication and the page or pages referred to:
 
Example
Peter Latz, Bushfires and Bushtucker Aboriginal Plant Use in Central Australia, IAD Press, Alice Springs, 2004, p248
 
Subsequent references to the same work should include the surname(s) of the author(s), the short title of the book (underline or italicized) and the page reference:
Example
Latz, Bushfires and Bushtucker, p248

• Journals
The first reference to a journal article should provide the author's name, the name of the article, (in inverted commas), the name of the journal (underlined or italicized), its volume, number and date, and the page reference:
 
Example
Ian Connellan, 'Tree of a Nation - Eucalypts', Australian Geographic, Vol 86, Apr-Jun 2007, pp 74-91

• Electronic Documents
Providing a citation to a electronic source (website address), tend to follow existing citation rules and format, with the date the information was 'retrieved', followed by the web address included in the citation at the end of the reference. Variation include providing the URL (web address) as a title with a hyperlink. Other examples may also include the date the page/website was last updated. Following are some examples:
 
Example
