my course is in HEALTH PROMOTION.
they didnt mention specific number of references.
these are some tips for my assignment:
*Assignments must be typed (using Times New Roman font size 12) and double spaced. Papers are to be submitted electronically via the Learning Management System (LMS), which includes an Academic Honesty Declaration. When submitting assignments, please read the Declaration carefully and ensure that you agree with the statement as it pertains to your paper.
*Essay Topics ( two assay topics which you can choose from):
1. The government should have little or no role to play in determining peoples behaviour. Promotion of health is a responsibility of the individual. Discuss these statements.
2. The food and soft drink industries state that they are part of the solution to the burden of disease due to obesity. Discus the veracity of this position.

In many public health journals the Vancouver referencing system is used (you can see examples in The Lancet or British Medical Journal). We recommend this referencing system for your written assignments. You may choose to use the Harvard (name-date) system. You must, however, use your chosen system consistently. Referencing guides are available at: https://www.lib.unimelb.edu.au/cite/
The University takes allegations of academic dishonesty very seriously and all cases are referred to the Dean of the Faculty. It is good to have a clear understanding of what to attribute, how to reference accurately and what constitutes common knowledge. The website gives an excellent summary of how to credit source material.
Please remember it is essential to reference every new idea and piece of information you introduce in your written assignments. Your work must be written in your own words, not simply cut and pasted from the source (even when referenced), except when verbatim citations are used and formatted and referenced in a way that indicates it is a quotation.
