Notes on using images

  • Use this format to cite (but not reproduce). To reproduce a photograph permission or copyright attribution may be necessary – in these cases you should check with your tutor or lecturer.
  • When using images that state “no attribution required” there is no need to provide a reference list entry, in-text citation or copyright attribution statement. Works from MS Clip Art or sites like Unsplash and Pixabay can be used in this way.
  • When citing an idea or concept from an image/diagram/map/chart/plot/photo, use an in-text citation, for example: (Center for Disease Control, 2016).
  • For an untitled photograph include a description in square brackets in place of a title.
