Referencing

When you are writing an essay, report or other assignment it is usual to support your arguments by reference to other published work.

These references may be from work presented in journal or newspaper articles, government reports, books or specific chapters of books, research dissertations and theses, material from the Internet etc.

There are three main reasons for citing accurate references:

  1. To give credit to other authors’ concepts and ideas;
  2. To provide the reader (often the marker/examiner of the assignment) with evidence of the breadth and depth of your reading; and
  3. To enable the readers of your work to locate the cited references easily. In this way dissemination of information can take place effectively.

We have provided you with a detailed guide to the most common forms of referencing in our subsequent posts.
