Reference requirements
Assessment Design – Adapted Harvard Referencing
Holmes will be implementing as a pilot program a revised Harvard approach to referencing. The following guidelines apply:
Reference sources in assignments are limited to sources which provide full text access to the source’s content for lecturers and markers.
The Reference list should be located on a separate page at the end of the assignment and titled: References.
It should include the details of all the in-text citations, arranged alphabetically A-Z by author surname.  In addition, it MUST include a hyperlink to the full text of the cited reference source. For example:Hawking, P., McCarthy, B. and Stein, A. 2004. Second Wave ERP Education, Journal of Information Systems Education, Fall,  http://jise.org/Volume15/n3/JISEv15n3p327.pdf
All assignments will require additional in-text reference details which will consist of the surname of the author/authors or name of the authoring body, year of publication, page number of content, paragraph where the content can be found.For example;“The company decided to implement a enterprise wide data warehouse business intelligence strategies (Hawking et al, 2004, p3(4)).”
Non-Adherence to Referencing Guidelines
Where students do not follow the above guidelines:
Students who submit assignments which do not comply with the guidelines will receive a 10% penalty.
Late penalties will apply, as per the Student Handbook each day, after the student/s have been notified of the resubmission requirements. 
Students who comply with guidelines and the citations are “fake” will be reported for academic misconduct.
