Good news! APA 7th edition is here!

The 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) has been released. This is good news as it is now clearer and more streamlined than the 6th edition. QUT Library has been busy adapting our resources to reflect the changes.

 

What you can do:

  • Follow Cite|Write as this has been edited and now reflects all changes. Cite|Write explains the changes in detail using templates, examples and excellent notes.
  • Borrow the APA 7th edition manual from our library here
  • If you are super keen, check out more information about the changes on the American Psychological Assocation page.

It’s Love Data Week 2020!

Lover you data week and rainbow love hearts

People hear statistics, but they feel stories* 

From the 10th to 14th February, QUT Library is celebrating the value and importance of research data. During 2020’s Love Data Week, we are adopting the theme of ‘data storytelling’.

QUT is celebrating the art of Data Storytelling that uses techniques, visualisation tools and narratives to bring together the story of your research.

Data storytelling is a new way of communicating and presenting your research data and translate your data to knowledge that a wider audience will remember. It can vastly improve the impact of your research output.

Visualisation is a prominent tool in data storytelling and two engaging examples are the visualisation of music genres through the ages and the bank of graphics from Information is Beautiful.

Some other easy to use tools include d3j, dataviz, plothy, gephi, canva and datawrapper.

There is a range of activities available to you during Love Data Week:
