Referencing is acknowledging the source of ideas and concepts that are not your own. It is the appropriate way to give credit to the original owner of an idea, piece of writing or creative work.
You should reference all your assessments unless told otherwise. This includes direct quotes, facts and figures, and any ideas and theories that you use. Your reference list also allows readers to follow up on the sources you have used.
Referencing is an important part of academic integrity and means you can avoid plagiarism. You'll have access to the Academic Integrity subject in your Interact2 site, which helps you understand these concepts.
The main referencing style at Charles Sturt is APA. You should check with your lecturer as some subjects use alternative styles.
If you have any questions about referencing, please refer to the Academic Skills team's resources.
