Referencing

Cultural differences

The diverse cultural backgrounds of our students bring different understandings of scholarship and academic practice; this may lead them to unwittingly commit plagiarism. Some cultures quote from texts and use ideas from them without referencing them. They use them as a sign of great respect to the author, but their protocol does not dictate that they should reference them. In western universities, writers show respect for the author by acknowledging their authorship using a referencing system, such as APA, Harvard or Vancouver.
