Referencing

Why reference?

There are many reasons for you to use references.

  • You are indicating that you have read published writing in the area you are studying.
  • Referencing allows you support your arguments.
  • You demonstrate that you are aware of and understand other opinions in the area you are studying by referring to authors who have written about them.
  • Using references allows you to demonstrate your ability to assess, compare and contrast, critically analyse and evaluate competing arguments.
  • Referring to documented evidence lends weight to and validates your argument.
  • Accurate references allow others to consult the same sources you have used.
  • To avoid plagiarism, you need to reference, in text and in the reference list, accurately.
