Citing AustLit in your research publications and as a source of authoritative information helps us enormously in demonstrating our value to the research community. When using AustLit as an information resource that you have relied on for your research, it is important you cite the database as a source of data and information. Adding AustLit to your reference list is also useful.
If you are using author records, bibliographical records, organisation histories or other notes, or using AustLit data empirically, you should cite AustLit in this manner:
AustLit (www.austlit.edu.au), St Lucia: The University of Queensland, 2002-.
and, when relevant, include the name of the author or work title, for example:
For an author's or an organisation's record:
Author record, Patrick White, AustLit (www.austlit.edu.au), St Lucia: The University of Queensland, 2002-. [Retrieved dd/mm/yyyy].
For a work's record:
Work record, Voss, AustLit (www.austlit.edu.au), St Lucia: The University of Queensland, 2002-. [Retrieved dd/mm/yyyy].
Follow standard citation rules when citing full text works published by AustLit.
There may also be other rules you will need to observe about the citing of internet publications. This generally depends on the publications for which you are writing, and the citation style they expect you to follow.
