Numbered referencing can be one tough cookie to crack. One particular question we get asked a lot is how to reference an image taken from the internet using QUT Numbered referencing. Have no fear! We have consulted the experts and this is the template we recommend.
Don’t have all of these pieces of information for your image? Here are some handy hints on how to navigate this.
- No author? Check for an organisation or corporate author. If still none, omit this information
- No date? Replace this section with [date unknown].
- No title? Write a brief description of the image in square brackets and put this where the title would be.
Of course this only makes sense with some examples. Have a look at these to get more of an idea of what your numbered reference should look like for an image.
