The Importance of Referencing

In any assignment it is absolutely necessary to give credit to others’ ideas. Any ideas borrowed from another source must be referenced. 

  • Cutting and pasting ideas from the internet is PLAGIARISM.  
  • Cutting and pasting work from the internet AND citing the work is PLAGIARISM. 
  • Ideas must be in your own words and referenced.  
  • You must use quotation marks for any direct quotations and they also have to be referenced.  Reference the direct quotations at the end of the sentence.
  • In one paragraph of paraphrased ideas you often have several different citations depending how many sources you used in that paragraph.
