What do I need to know about referencing?

When writing a report or an essay you are expected to fully reference the materials you have used. The report or essay should be your own work, in your own words.

You must check with your school/faculty as to which system and/or style is applicable. For general guidance on referencing please visit our library guides on referencing and using EndNote.

Please also refer to the sections regarding examination and assessment offences and plagiarism.
