If you are a student studying a Virtual Plater module at a university/college, you should follow your institution’s policy on how to give references. Whatever the detail of this, however, it is important that in assignments you give a specific reference whenever you quote from, paraphrase, or otherwise make use of material in the V Plater modules.  The reason for this is to make your sources clear in the way necessary for avoiding plagiarism.

How to reference the V Plater modules

(i) ‘Chicago’  number system of referencing

If you quote or use otherwise, e.g., Module A, page 1.2.3, footnote as follows:

1. N. Townsend, Virtual Plater Module A: Living Life to the Full (Newman University College, 2015), 1.2.3, accessed 22 Mar. 2015,  http://www.virtualplater.org.uk/?page_id=209.

You should give the date accessed because the text on the website may be updated without notice.

If you need to footnote this module more than once, use a short form for the second and later references, e.g.:

2. Townsend, Module A, 1.2.4, accessed 23 Mar. 2015, http://www.virtualplater.org.uk/?page_id=244.

The bibliographic entry should be:

Townsend, N., Virtual Plater Module A: Living Life to the Full, Birmingham: Newman University College, 2015. Accessed 22-23 Mar. 2015. http://www.virtualplater.org.uk/?page_id=77.

(ii) ‘Harvard’ author-date system of referencing

If you quote or use otherwise, e.g., Module A, page 1.2.3, put the following in parenthesis in your main text:

(Townsend, 2015, 1.2.3)

Second and later references have the same form.

The bibliographic entry should be:

Townsend, N., 2015. Virtual Plater Module A: Living Life to the Full. Birmingham: Newman University College. http://www.virtualplater.org.uk/?page_id=77 (accessed 22-23 Mar. 2015).
