resource that you have used in previous study as possible You have two minutes Task Are there any types of resource missing from the list? What makes each of these different?

Some types of resource Textbooks overview of a topic/practical guide Journal articles research, usually narrow focus Policy Government guidance etc. Professional news from across the sector Theses research from PhDs etc. Conference papers usually research in progress

And more The type of resource, and how you integrate it in your work, is more important than how you accessed it.

Why reference? To give due credit to the authors/creators of the original work The consistent style allows the reader to see what type of information has been used and to find it themselves First question
