What is Referencing?

Referencing is necessary to ensure you do not plagiarise (copy) someone else's work. You cannot present the work of someone else's as your own.  This applies to the writings, ideas, statistics, images and audio recordings of other people, whether it is published or unpublished. You can avoid plagiarism by citing your sources.
