On a reference page: ·· A reference list should appear at the end of your assignment and include full details of all sources (discussed, quoted or paraphrased) that are referred to in the body of your text. These should be leftaligned and in alphabetical order of author. In a bibliography: ·· Where work has informed or influenced what you have written (but is not referred to in your work), it should be included as a separate list in a bibliography (placed behind the reference page). A very wide variety of material can be used as source material for your assignments – books, journals, as well as a great range of online resources such as online journals, databases, e-books, websites, and live performances. All the sources you use must have authority, be up to date and relevant.
