About UQ AVJ style

When writing assignments you have to cite (acknowledge) the source of your ideas and quotes in sufficient detail so that lecturers, and others, can locate the item.

Prior to starting your assignment check with your lecturer/tutor for the style preferred by the School. Use this guide if your lecturer/tutor indicates that you should use the UQ AVJ style of referencing.

Adapted from Instructions for authors for submissions to the journal of the Australian Veterinary Association, published by Wiley InterScience, the Australian Veterinary Journal referencing style is a numbered style, with some variations approved for use at UQ campuses.

Keep in mind the following points:

  • Write down all the citation details of a source as you use it.
  • Place quotation marks ‘_’ around a direct quote.
  • When using a direct quote include the page number(s) in the in-text reference.
  • You are advised to check with your lecturer as to their preference on the use of page numbers.
  • The Reference List, located at the end of the assignment, lists all works cited.
