IEEE Style: Assignments

A guide to IEEE referencing style for Murdoch University students and staff


You must provide appropriate references when referring to your own work. For students, this applies if you quote or paraphrase any work you have submitted for an assessment in another unit.

This is necessary as all assignments include the following Student Declaration:

Except where indicated, the work I am submitting in this assignment is my own work and has not been submitted for assessment in another unit.

This includes text, figures, or tables copied from a completed assessment in a different Unit without proper acknowledgement of the original source (even if you are the original author).


Standard format for citation

[#] A. A. Author, "Title of assignment: Subtitle if appropriate," Unpublished manuscript, Unit Code: Name of Unit., Abbrev. Univ. Name, Location of University, Abbrev. State, Country, Year.
