If you are referencing a tutorial manual, do you use the subject co-ordinator as the author if no other author is named?

Hi Merryn,

That's an option - if you have time you could ask your subject coordinator about that and they might give you some useful directions - of course normally in referencing you wouldn't have to opportunity of asking the people involved in publishing a text who exactly might have written it and so there is a provision in the style for no author - in which case the title of the text comes first in the reference list entry and is also used in place of the author in-text. So if you can't get an answer that satisfies you as to who wrote the tutorial manual that option is always there for you.
