Why should I reference?

When writing assignments, you need to acknowledge your use of another author's ideas so that you:

·         give the original author credit 

·         support your arguments and make your assignment more academic

·         enable the reader to find your sources

·         Prove to your lecturer that you have read around the subject

Accurate referencing will  help you avoid accusations of plagiarism and possible loss of marks.
