Health Science: Referencing for Health

This guide contains resources and guidance to help students completing the Bachelor of Health Science.


As Health students, you will be using the APA 7th referencing style.

Why is referencing important?


At university you are expected to reference information sources used in your assignments. Referencing is important as it:

  • gives credit to authors
