Junior School Referencing

A guide to compliment the teaching of correct referencing within the Junior School

Referencing an interview

Sometimes we get our information from interviewing someone.

This is what we call primary research!!

We might interview a friend!

We might interview someone in our family!

We might even interview someone who is an expert in the subject we are researching!!

How can we put this in our bibliography?

It is tricky.

There is no place in JAPA to reference our interview.

JAPA cannot help us.


So now what do we do?


How to reference an interview

When we interview someone as part of our research, it is important to add it to our bibliography.

There are two important things that we can put down to reference an interview.

1. The name of the person whom we interviewed.

2. The date on which we interviewed that person.

Like this: Albert Einstein (22 January 1950)

This shows everyone that I got some information for my project by interviewing Albert Einstein on the 22 January 1950!

Maybe I will make a separate section in my bibliography to show all the people interviewed as a part of my research!
