Note: Papers should be typed using size 12 font or legibly handwritten (double line-spacing), as well as spell-checked. Please submit this assignment on (or before) the due date so as to avoid possible penalties. All assignments must use Harvard AGPS Referencing. Refer to the USQ library guide for details on this.
If you use different chapters from an edited book such as the recommended book edited by Baylis, Smith and Owens make sure that you reference each source separately. For example, when referencing chapter 3 by Scott and chapter 4 by Cox, they would appear as in text references as follows; (Scott, 2008, p. 58) and (Cox, 2008, p. 84). Then in your bibliography they would also appear as two separate entries. In nearly all instances you would use page numbers for your in-text references.
Plagiarism, or copying another author’s work without referencing it is a serious academic offence, and it is a form of cheating. It may be tempting to cut and copy from online sources and present this work as your own. However, this is very easy for staff to detect, so please do not run the risk of failing on these grounds. For further information on this refer to the following link.
An important note on sources:
When preparing Assignments , students are strongly encouraged to consult and cite at least three relevant books or book chapters, and cite at least three relevant journal articles. Google scholar is a useful tool for searching for journal articles. If students wish to use other non academic Internet sources they are restricted to one appropriate Internet source, other than news articles or government reports. Information on determining the reliability of Internet Sources follows the marking criteria sheets. You must consult and cite relevant academic sources and these sources should be the primary sources from which you draw your information. Do not use Wikipedia or other encyclopaedia as sources for university level work.

Important information on using Internet Sources
It is important to note that if you do use Internet Sources they must be carefully selected and you should only use them in conjunction with analytical hard copy sources such as books or journal articles. The sources you use when preparing assignments should reflect a balance.
In addition, it is important that you know about the author of the information on the website so you can determine whether or not they are qualified to write on the issue, who they are representing and what were their motivations for writing the information. If the author is qualified to write on the topic, they will normally have their qualifications listed on the document and you should be able to find other articles or books they have written on the field/topic. If the person is not qualified you will often find that there is no mention or little reference to the author. This should be a warning bell that all is not right with that author and a strong indicator that they are not qualified to write about the field/topic.
If you do use Internet sources when preparing your assignments please consider the following information to ‘select’ reliable and critical sources. The CARS Checklist for Research Source Evaluation.
The CARS Checklist for Research Source Evaluation
Credibility Trustworthy source, author’s credentials, evidence of quality control, known or respected authority, organizational support. Goal: an authoritative source, a source that supplies some good evidence that allows you to trust it.
Accuracy Up to date, factual, detailed, exact, comprehensive, audience and purpose reflect intentions of completeness and accuracy. Goal: a source that is correct today (not yesterday), a source that gives the whole truth.
Reasonableness Fair, balanced, objective, reasoned, no conflict of interest, absence of fallacies or slanted tone. Goal: a source that engages the subject thoughtfully and reasonably, concerned with the truth.
Support Listed sources, contact information, available corroboration, claims supported, documentation supplied. Goal: a source that provides convincing evidence for the claims made, a source you can triangulate (find at least two other sources that support it).
