Avoiding Plagiarism

Kate Hart has created a graphic guide to citing and referencing sources. Kate's infographic on avoiding plagiarism uses a source quote from J.K. Rowling to demonstrate how to correctly reference that information.

It provides a guide to when and how you should acknowledge the work of others in your research task. Although it is possible for you to upload and download text, film, images and music, it doesn't mean that you are allowed to do so.

Harvard Referencing Style

The Harvard system is another name given to the Author-Date style of referencing and citation.Harvard referencing style uses references in two places in a piece of writing: in the text and in a reference list at the end.

In general, each name that appears in the text must also appear in the reference list, and every work in the reference list must also be referred to in the main text. All the details of the reference are important, including the full stops and commas. In-text references in Harvard style should give the author’s family name and the year of the work’s publication; if you quote or paraphrase, you should also give a page number.

Claiming the work of others as your own (by quoting from books, websites or other sources without acknowledging them through a reference list) is a breach of copyright law called plagiarism. Referencing correctly is a way of showing your teacher what is your work and what is supporting material drawn from another source.
