Referencing & Plagiarism
Guidance and signposting to resources such as Turnitin
Referencing is an important academic skill that you will use throughout your time at university. Correct referencing and citing presents the source of your information and provides the evidence for the statements that you make within your writing. If you reference correctly it helps you avoid plagiarism, which is cheating.
This resource provides short overviews of referencing and plagiarism on the video carousel, and many useful resources from the Library and Student Learning Service can be found in the links section.
Remember that the way in which you present your citations and references will depend on the discipline in which you are studying - if in doubt speak with your lecturer or tutor.
For information about using Turnitin please see the related Toolkit resources below.
