|In this chapter:|
- Personal communications may be unpublished lecture notes, letters, memos, personal interviews, telephone conversations, email or messages from non-archived discussion groups or bulletin boards, posts or updates from social media accounts that are not publicly accessible, or photographs, images, tables or data that you created yourself.
- Personal communications are usually non-recoverable from the reader’s perspective and are not to be included in the Reference List, but should be cited in-text as they are referred to.
- Give the initials as well as the surname of the communicator, and provide as exact a date as possible.
- Lecture notes are treated as personal communication if they are unpublished (i.e. not copied and distributed in print or on the Internet with the instructor’s permission).
