    Referencing
    The Harvard Style
  • What is referencing….?
    Referencing is making a list of the sources of information you have used to prepare an assignment
    If you use another person’s words or ideas without acknowledging them it is called plagiarism
  • Why reference?
    To provide evidence to support points you have made
    To show you have understood relevant texts
    To refer others to your sources
    To enable your tutor to check the accuracy of your work
    To review your sources for revision or further information

  • What do I need to reference?
    Any quotes taken from the work of another person
    If you quote, use quotation marks “…” and citation either before or after the quotation.
    If you paraphrase, you don’t need quotation marks. Cite in the flow of your text.
    Any ideas taken from the work of another person
    Images are as subject to copyright as books and journals. Your citation should be next to the image you use.
    Any images you refer to or copy into your work

  • Citation vs Reference?
    Citing (or the citation) means writing within your text the sources from which you have obtained information
    Reference is the detailed description of the item from which you have obtained information
  • One last thing, “Harvard”….?
    At South Thames College we use the Harvard style of referencing. A lot of universities use it too – however, its possible you might come across different styles as you continue your studies, but the general principles are the same.
