    Hey,

    I'm doing this essay, and the lecturer has pushed for us to use as much data as possible to back up our claims.What I've done is copy and pasted figures (graphs) from other journal articles, and put 'Source: XXX (199X)' underneath, with a full reference in the bibliography (like any other reference). I know referencing systems vary by department etc. but is this alright? Do I need to get permission to use them?

    I... I think so? We've never been told what referencing system we use, just been given examples of it.

    Here's an example of a full reference:
    Wagstaff, A. (1986) ‘The Demand for Health Some New Empirical Evidence’, Journal of Health Economics, vol. 5, pp. 195 – 233.

    In text I'd just go 'Wagstaff (1986) argues that...'

    That looks like Harvard to me.

    http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm <= this website tells you pretty much everything about how to reference using this sytem. If you go down to electronic sources -> electronic images, it will tell you how to cite a figure.
