Caution: Many lecturers prefer you to go outside academic sources rather than just relying on their own wording and ideas. Doing so demonstrates that you can explore the topic outside the boundaries of the course materials. However, if you have been directly requested in assignment instructions to reference lecture notes and study guide materials, then they should be should be referenced as indicated above in the reference list. The in-text citations should match the reference listing. If you cite an individual author in the reference list, then use that author’s name in the in-text citations . If you cite a group author in the reference list, then cite that group author in the in-text citations.
