Recording your citations

Collecting references during note taking helps you to keep track of the sources you have consulted or referred to in your assignment.

  • This saves you time as you will know where to relocate the source again should you need to
  • When you have finished your assignment your notes will help you compile your reference list or bibliography accurately, thus avoiding unintentional plagiarism.
