Written work such as assignments, scholarly dissertations and theses require the acknowledgement of other authors' work used. Acknowledgement is given by including references and a bibliography in your written work to the information sources you have used. Specific referencing styles must be adhered to.
Consult the library page on Referencing styles, or contact your department to obtain its prescribed reference techniques.
Students and researchers affiliated to the department of English can request a copy of The Handbook from the department, which includes examples of how the department wishes the Harvard referencing style to be used.
APA 6th edition style
Plagiarism is a form of academic misconduct. It involves both appropriating someone else’s work and passing it off as one’s own work afterwards.
