Importance of Referencing

Academic Integrity is a core value for ACT. All students are required to act with honesty when writing their assignments. Referencing is an important part of writing in tertiary education. Students should cite the original sources in order to:

  • Avoid plagiarism
  • Give credit to the original authors
  • Attest that authoritative works are related to the paper 

There are two ways to give credit to your resources:

  • In-text citations 
  • Reference / Works Cited List / Bibliography 

Please use the examples provided in this guide to create your citations. 




Tip: EbscoHost databases and Abi/Inform provide citations for all their full-text items. Please click at the corresponding link and select citation style.
