  • In the reference list, reference the source where the figure, graph or table is located. e.g. if it is in a book, reference the whole book; if it is on a website, reference the website.
  • Number the figures for your own document, do not use figure number from the original source.
  • For multiple authors check the author layout table for in-text and reference list format
