Referencing is an important part of academic writing. This Guide introduces you to the basics of why and how to reference and gives guidance on the different referencing styles used at the University of Liverpool. It also points you towards referencing packages that can help.
For help with referencing, contact your Liaison Librarian.
You need to reference:
Plagiarism is passing off someone else’s ideas as your own. If you don’t know when to cite and reference the sources you have used, you may be guilty of plagiarism without realising it. If you keep a record of where you find your information, then it will be easy to find the details when you need to reference your work.
For more information on plagiarism please refer to the University Policy for Dealing with Plagiarism, Collusion and Fabrication of Data.
