Referencing & Plagiarism


1. Ethical Use of Information

  • Respect copyright laws and fair use policies.

  • If someone else thought it, wrote it, invented it, made it. Don't pretend it's yours. Referencing the work of others also gives your work more credibility.

  • Seek permission for using copyrighted material where appropriate.

2. Avoiding Plagiarism

  • Paraphrase information; synthesise ideas; use quotes.

  • Do not copy chunks of information; keep quotes succinct.

  • Reference using APA-7 formatting.
