Whether you are quoting from a book, a website or
any other source, it essential to acknowledge the

Harvard referencing it is important to
understand that you will be guilty of ’ the
theft of intellectual property’ (Jones,2009 p

As Trish Jones states in ‘How Harvard
referencing changed my life’
‘Once acquired and understood, this is a life

enrich the lives of all who use it, and
guarantee the approval of teachers,
everywhere.’ (Jones, 2009 p 13)
