What is referencing?

When you are writing a piece of work and use someone else's words or ideas you must reference them. pile of books

This means that you need to include detailed information on all sources consulted, both within your text (in-text citations) and at the end of your work (reference list or bibliography).

Another way to understand referencing is to think of an analogy - when you buy designer clothes there is usually a label attached to say who made them; this brand identity is like an author of a book
