What is referencing? Every source of information or idea that is not your own must be acknowledged in your writing. Referencing or citing the information is a way to acknowledge the original authors of the sources you have used.

Properly referencing sources that you've used in your assignments, in the style required by your lecturer, is an essential part of university writing and necessary for academic integrity.
