What is Referencing?
Anything that you have read, and refer to in your academic writing, you must:·
This means books, journals, magazines, newspaper articles, websites, documents on websites (PDFs), lecture notes, PowerPoint slides....
There are hundreds of various styles of referencing. The Harvard style (or name and date) is one most used in AIT. However, always check with your lecturer on which style they require.
