What is the difference between a reference list and a bibliography?

  • A reference list details in alphabetical order by author family name, all the works/articles/journals/ monographs/web pages and data sources you have cited in your written work.

  • A bibliography lists, in alphabetical order by author family name, all the works/articles/journals/ monographs/web pages and data sources you have used or accessed to create your written work.


Note: RMIT Business requires all students to use a reference list in assessment tasks unless otherwise instructed by your lecturers.
2.3.1 Referencing internet sources

Referencing of web resources follows the same principles as for printed material. Often it is difficult to decide how to reference a web site, especially when it originates from a corporate or government body.
It may not be clear:

  • who or which part of an organisation is responsible for the content. (Check the header, footer or “About” section of the site).

  • when it was created or last updated. (Many sites are continuously updated – check for clues such as references to events which happened in a particular year or look for a copyright date. If it is clear that a site is continuously updated use the current year.)

  • which part to take as the title. (Home pages do not always require a title. For subordinate pages, choose the most obvious heading on the page).

  • who is responsible for publishing it.


The important thing is to make it clear exactly which part of the site you are referring to and provide details of the bodies responsible.
Viewed date

As documents on the web are subject to sudden change, it is essential to include the date on which you accessed the document, especially if no date can be found on the document itself.
