Referencing is the term used for the appropriate attribution of all the ideas and materials you use in writing an assignment.
Referencing includes the use of indicators in the text of your work showing where concepts and quotes came from, and a listing at the end of your work of all the resources you used to build your argument.
It is important to reference thoroughly and correctly to avoid instances of plagiarism, which is severely penalised.
References are usually displayed following the rules of a particular Referencing Style.
