How can I reference correctly?

You can reference correctly and avoid plagiarising in the following ways... 

As a general guide, you have to reference when:

  • quoting sections from a book
  • including text that you have copied and pasted from the internet
  • paraphrasing or summarising someone else's argument
  • using another student's notes (even in group work projects)
  • including points from lecture notes

Referencing styles vary so make sure you check with your department if you’re unsure. 

Skills@Library's Guide to Plagiarism is also useful to explain what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.
