Citing and referencing

Citing and referencing correctly is important for several reasons:

  • it acknowledges someone else's work
  • it helps your reader to find and verify the sources you have read
  • it avoids plagiarism.

Cite: quote or paraphrase within the text of your assignment

References: list at the end of your assignment that gives complete information about all the sources of information used in the assignment
