Referencing as evidence

You are required to reference your sources as evidence of your academic integrity. Failing to cite your sources is plagiarism.

Referencing is very important when:

  • paraphrasing and summarising the ideas / words / works of others
  • quoting directly from a source.

You must follow the instructions in your Course Guide on the required method of referencing. See Guidelines for the presentation of written work .
