Staff and students are responsible for acknowledging the sources used when writing research articles, books, assignments and projects. You must acknowledge what you have read in order to avoid plagiarism, and so that:
There are two parts to acknowledging another's work within your own:
The way in which these two parts are laid out is determined by a bibliographic style. Each department at Unitec requires you to use a particular style for citations and references. Your department may have their own handbook that you can use as a guide.
The most common styles and some examples of citations and references are found in this guide. The library has a number of published style guides available in the Reference Collection and some Unitec departments produce style booklets.
If you require more help with referencing than this guide can provide please contact Te Puna Ako on ext 8611.
