Referencing Style Guide: Table


If you are including a figure or table in your assessment task that has been taken or copied from another source, this must be referenced.

A table contains data, typically numerical or statistical, presented across rows and columns. Any type of illustration other than a table is called a figure. This can include graphs, charts, diagrams, mind-maps, and photographs.

Figures and tables should not be presented in colour  - use greyscale.

Note: Only the article, book or website in which the table appears is included in the reference list in the required reference format for that source.
