What is referencing?

Referencing is a standardised way of acknowledging the sources of information and ideas that you have used in your document.

Why reference?

Referencing is important to avoid plagiarism, to verify quotations, to show that you have researched the topic and to enable readers to follow up what you have written and locate the cited author’s work.

Steps in referencing 

  • Keep a record of the full bibliographic details and relevant page numbers of all the sources from which information is taken
  • Insert brief citations at the appropriate places in the text of your assignment. These are known as in-text citations
  • Compile a reference list at the end of the assignment that includes the full details of all references cited.

Always check with your course coordinator, lecturer or tutor about the bibliographic style preferred for your course.
