What is referencing and plagiarism?

Anne says...

Review

Research is a major part of university education, and it is expected that you will read, understand and discuss the writings of others. When you write your assignments you will refer to existing literature on your subject, including books, journals, newspapers and websites. It is essential that you learn how to reference correctly, so you can acknowledge the contribution that others have made to your own work, provide evidence for your statements, and protect yourself against accusations of plagiarism. Don't be alarmed - there's plenty of help here...
