Why you should reference
To avoid plagiarism - this is when you use someone's ideas or work without acknowledgment
To show the authority on which you base your arguments
To show how widely you have read
To enable others to find your sources
When should you reference?
You should include a reference every time you quote, paraphrase (i.e. write someone's information in your own words), summarise or gain ideas from another person's work.
You should include a reference no matter what format the work takes (e.g. web page, tweet, journal article, email or diagram).
