Referencing drug reference resources
One way to reference information from MIMS, AMH, eTG, AusDI or AccessPharamcy, including Product Information (PI), is to treat these resources like an electronic reference resource.
For the electronic reference resource, the reference will include the following elements:
If the reference topic has no author, use the topic as the first element in the reference. Author information may be listed on the first page of the entry or under a section called 'Contributors' (or similar).
Include the year of the last update in brackets. If there is no update year listed, use the copyright year. This information may be included at the top or bottom of the screen.
Include the word 'In' followed by the title of the resource in italics (e.g. MIMS Online, etc).
Include the basic access URL after "Retrieved from". No access date is required for electronic reference entries.
EXAMPLES (APA 6th STYLE)
In the body of your text you would reference the citation as (Title of webpage, year of last update).
... children under the age of three should be given a reduced dose (Panadol, 2009).
A page on Panadol from MIMS would look like this:
Panadol. (2009). In MIMS Online. Retrieved from http://www.mimsonline.com
The same example from AMH would look like this:
Panadol. (2009). In Australian Medicines Handbook. Retrieved from https://amhonline.amh.net.au/
When creating an EndNote reference for these resources, select Electronic book section option as a Reference type.
