WHY CITE REFERENCES?
Correct referencing is an essential component of academic writing. Referencing correctly shows that you have conducted relevant and thorough research. Referencing incorrectly can count as plagiarism.
Citation - a specific resource mentioned in the body of a document
Reference - enough detail about a resource to enable somebody to find the resource themselves
Plagiarism - leading your reader to believe someone else’s work has been created by you
Bibliography - a list of references at the end of a document
Style - the exact way in which references and citations are put into a document
Use reference management software to manage your reference list and bibliography.
