The following example applies to the APA style.


When including a direct quotation in text, be sure to enclose the quote in double quotation marks and provide the author, date of publication, and page number (or paragraph number and/or section heading if there are no page numbers). For example:

"...." (Australian Curriculum, 2012, Personalised Learning section, para. 3)


... the Australian Curriculum (2012, Personalised Learning section, para. 3) recommends that "...."

Reference List

The reference list at the end of the essay should include author, date, webpage title and URL. For example:

Australian Curriculum. (2012). Students with disability. Retrieved from


The APA Guide to Electronic Resources (linked below) gives a useful overview of citing webpages.
