Notes:

1. Academic Integrity

If your work is not properly referenced it may appear that you are trying to present someone else's ideas as your own. This is plagiarismand it is considered to be a form of cheating. It is your responsibility to ensure that your work conforms to the University's standards of academic integrity. The University Assessment guidelines for Cheating procedures for Undergraduate coursescan be found here:

2. Referencing

Accurate and consistent referencing is essential in all academic work. Whenever you refer to either the work or ideas of someone, or are influenced by another's work, you must acknowledge this. Similarly if you make a direct quotation from someone's work this should be referred to accurately. You are strongly advised to keep detailed records of the sources you use in your research, and to do this at the time that you use them. The Referencing Help page on the Library Gateway web page is a useful tool to help you do this. See link below:
