Figures (including Images) & Tables

Figures (including Images)

Illustrations, maps, photographs, graphs, charts and drawings (excluding tables) are referred to as figures. Below is an example of how a figure would appear in text:

Waikato university Campus

Figure 1: University of Waikato Campus (Source: The University of Waikato, 2010)

Unless it is your own work, the source must be acknowledged in full below the figure as a figure caption. The caption goes below the image with a parenthetical reference, and includes the figure number, a description of the figure, and a parenthetical reference: (Source: Author, Date). Italicise the heading "Figure" and the number. Be consistent with capitalisation.

The full citation also goes in the reference list.

In text citation:
