What is Referencing?

Referencing is an acknowledgement of the sources that you have read and that you have used to support your own theories and arguments during the course of your written work while studying at EU Business School.

All works that you have used during your research must be referenced in your assignments including quotations, theories, imagery, websites, statistics, diagrams and data.

Why should I reference?

Referencing shows your tutor the scope of reading and research you have carried out.

Referencing allows your tutor to access materials that you have read and cited.

Referencing gives credit to the original author.

Referencing allow you to strengthen key arguments throughout your research with quotations etc. by particular specialists in the same field.

Referencing will allow you to demonstrate your own academic integrity and honesty.

How to compose your References in the Harvard Referencing Style?

Harvard Referencing Sequence?

Who wrote or complied the work?

When was the work published?

The Title of the work?

How can the work be found?

Examples?

What is Plagiarism?

‘… passing off someone else’s work, either intentionally or unintentionally, as your own, for your own benefit.’

Carroll, J., & Appleton, J. “Plagiarism: A Good Practice Guide” 2002, JISC/Oxford Brookes University

16

“…passing off someone else’s work, either intentionally or unintentionally, as your own, for your own benefit.”
Any source other than your own. This could be books or journals, lectures or presentations, TV or radio programmes or any work by another author. Ignorance is no excuse! – It’s worth spending time familiarizing yourself with the concept of plagiarism and how to write and reference properly. You will have to use other people’s work in your essays and assessments. This is a normal part of academic writing. They key is knowing how to do it correctly.

Plagiarism can take three forms:

“Copying” “Paraphrasing” “Collusion”
If you copy a passage from another source, you must put it in quotation ,arks (“…”) and provide a reference, acknowledging the author(s). Even if you don’t copy another source word for word, using the same words and phrases from another source means you need to provide a reference (but not quotation marks). Unless an assessment is clearly defined as “group work”, sharing research, ideas and writing with your peers is collusion – as form of plagiarism.

Why do people commit plagiarism?

They are unaware of the rules - The rules about plagiarism differ from country to country. You must familiarise yourself with the EU Business School’s definition of plagiarism.

They feel under too much pressure - University can be stressful and there can be pressure to complete reports and assignments in a short timescale.

It is never worth plagiarising other work in order to meet a deadline. The consequences of plagiarism can be much worse than the consequences of asking for support or requesting an extended deadline for your assignment.

What can happen?

Plagiarism is an “academic offence”.

You will face consequences.

It may lead to you failing the assignment, the module / course.

It may lead to suspension or expulsion from EU Business School.

How do we ensure academic honesty?

EU Business School uses “Turnitin”

A database used by universities across the world.

It automatically compares what you have submitted to the database of published resources and works out how much of your assignment could be from other sources.

Some of your writing will always be the same as other’s work. Quotes and paraphrases of existing work is essential in good critical discussion, but, your tutor will be automatically alerted if your assignment contains too much text which is recognized by the system and will look for whether or not you have referenced correctly.

Example of very high similarity on Turnitin:

Example of an assignment which needs to be better paraphrased:

Example a low similarity rating on Turnitin:

Sharing work:

Do not share your work with any classmates or external parties

If your work is used and copied, it may show up with high similarity

It can be difficult to confirm the origin of the work – you may be penalised

Work together with classmates, rather than passing work

Sharing work on public platforms for others to use is unethical

“Don’t go through your degree being scared/confused about plagiarism. Take time to familiarise yourself with how to avoid plagiarism and how to reference other authors correctly. Once you know how, you can write confidently and positively.”
