WHY DO WE REFERENCE?

  • To avoid plagiarism by giving credit to the original source of an idea, piece of information or resource.
  • To support your work with the authoritative work of another author.
  • To demonstrate your knowledge and familiarity with a topic that you have researched.
  • To help readers of your work to find the original source of information or ideas that you have used.
