  2. 2. What is referencing….?<br /> Referencing is making a list of the sources of information you have used to prepare an assignment<br /> If you use another person’s words or ideas without acknowledging them it is called plagiarism<br />
  3. 3. Why reference?<br />To provide evidence to support points you have made<br />To show you have understood relevant texts<br />To refer others to your sources<br />To enable your tutor to check the accuracy of your work<br />To review your sources for revision or further information <br />
  4. 4. What do I need to reference?<br />Any quotes taken from the work of another person<br />If you quote, use quotation marks “…” and citation either before or after the quotation.<br />If you paraphrase, you don’t need quotation marks. Cite in the flow of your text.<br />Any ideas taken from the work of another person<br />Images are as subject to copyright as books and journals. Your citation should be next to the image you use.<br />Any images you refer to or copy into your work<br />
  5. 5. Citation vs Reference?<br />Citing (or the citation) means writing within your text the sources from which you have obtained information<br />Reference is the detailed description of the item from which you have obtained information<br />
  6. 6. One last thing, “Harvard”….?<br />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.<br /> If you want to know more about Harvard, click here<br />
