* Internet referencing are those references that are identified solely through the internet – these are not classified as ejournals. Internet sources need to be assessed carefully. White papers are an accepted resource but again the depth of information contained within should provide value and should come from a trusted internet source. For example, Gartner, IBM, SAP, Forrester. If unsure email either myself or your tutors for clarification. Computerworld, Newsweek and other assorted magazines are not acceptable reference material for this type of academic paper.
