Referencing and Plagiarism: Avoiding Plagiarism

Referencing in the APA style.

Avoiding Plagiarism

Copying the words and ideas of others without acknowledging correct ownership is called plagiarism

Plagiarising the work of others is academically dishonest, and is considered cheating.  Plagiarism may result in disciplinary action being taken against you.

Please be sure that you understand and comply with the assessment requirements set out by your lecturer.  If you are in any doubt, ask your lecturer for assistance.
