When writing assignments it is important to reference your work properly.
There are three main reasons for doing this:
- You need to acknowledge the work that is not yours, and so avoid committing plagiarism.
- It enables other people to read the documents that you have read.
- It shows the breadth of knowledge that you have consulted.
There are two parts to referencing:
- The citation is included in the text. It shows that what you have written is not your own idea (or research). If you do not correctly cite other people’s work, you are plagiarising.
- The reference is included in a list at the end. It gives the full details of what you have cited, so that someone else can read what you have read.
