Alcohol Related Violence

Assessment Task 1: Prepare a reference list on a justice topic

1. Define a primary, secondary and tertiary source.

Primary source: These sources are first-hand accounts of a topic. These are immediate and are available from the people who have a direct connection with it. Example: Original Documents like Diaries and Interviews.

Secondary source: These are the sources created by the people who did not participate in the events that are researched. These sources are created later by the person who did not experience first-hand. Example: Book Reviews and Encyclopaedias.

Tertiary source: These are the sources that abstract and compile other sources and are based on a collection of primary and secondary sources. Example: Textbooks and Manuals.

2a. This task requires you to choose ONE justice topic from the list below. Please highlight your chosen topic.

  • Policing in Victoria
  • Gang Violence
  • Family & Domestic Violence
  • Alcohol related Violence
  • Youth offenders in Victoria & Australia

2b. Once you have chosen your justice topic from the above, list 5 key words or phrases that you can use in your search engine to help in your research.

  1. Key word or phrase = Alcohol and Crime
  2. Key word or phrase = Alcohol and Violence
  3. Key word or phrase = Criminal Justice: Alcohol and Violence
  4. Key word or phrase = Issue of Alcohol and crime: Bureau of justice statistics
  5. Key word or phrase = Is there a causal relationship between Alcohol use and Violence?

3. Using your key words that you have identified in question 2b, begin your research to develop a reference list. You will need to find reputable sources that reflect your chosen justice topic. You must locate the following sources:

  • 2 books (HINT: They can be on-line books)

Book 1: Alcohol-related violence: Prevention and treatment, M McMurran

Book 2: Dealing with alcohol: indigenous usage in Australia, New Zealand and Canada, S Saggers and D Gray

  • 2 journal articles (HINT: Try searching the Holmesglen databases)

Journal article 1: Alcohol and homicide in Australia: Trends & issues in crime and criminal justice, J Dearden & J Payne.

Journal article 2: Human aggression while under the influence of alcohol and other drugs: An integrative research review, B.J. Bushman

  • 2 websites (HINT: The websites that you locate must be reputable)

Webpage 1: https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/ac.pdf

Webpage 2: https://www.bocsar.nsw.gov.au/Pages/bocsar_pages/Alcohol_Related_Violence.aspx

4. Now that you have located your sources, choose ONEbook and write an example of in-text citation. HINT: Remember, an in-text citation is simply the author’s surname, year of publication and page number if it is a direct quote e.g. (Brown, 2018, pg. 28)

5. Now it is time to prepare your reference list using the Holmesglen APA 6th style guide!

Remember, this will need to be on a separate page and in alphabetical order based on the author’s surname. If there is no author, you can use the name of the organisation. HINT: Please refer to the Holmesglen referencing page for assistance http://holmesglen.libguides.com/apareferencing and blue book provided.
