    So, referencing: I read an article and get a quote/concept I wish to use and it is referenced in said article. Do I reference the reference or reference the article?

    The referencing system is Harvard Gatton if that makes a difference. Yes, UQ Gatton has its' own referencing style... >.<

    We're always told to use original source, I'd reference the reference

    Even if I don't have or haven't read the original source? (Not arguing, just putting my thoughts out there to try and work it out :) )

    Hope this helps :)

    Occasionally, you may have to use a source that has been referenced in another source. If you can, try to find the original source and use that. If you cannot obtain this source, then you need to use a two-stage referencing system. For example,

    (Sorgheloos, 1967, as cited in Sargeant, 2008)

    What Izzy said. Or..check UQs website for its policy on plagiarism and im pretty sure you will find correct/prefered referencing document somewhere.

    oh how i hate referancing! pretty sure ill get kicked out of uni for plagiarism soon for not referancing properly.
    on our uni website it has the handbook for the referancing style up there, but we dont use harvard. there must be a handbook for harvard outlining how to referance things like this.

    Thankfully for me, my uni like the chicago style of referencing... much easier and straightforward. :)

    I'm teaching my Year 7 class how to reference according to ECU guidelines (mostly because it's the Uni I went through) so that hopefully when/if they get to Uni it won't be such a big deal!

    Referencing isn't all that difficult once you know how to do it and know where to find the guidelines. **)
