Harvard Referencing

Harvard Referencing

For my essay I need to Harvard reference so I went to university to find out more about how to apply it and use it for my work.

Referencing is used to find the source of where you have found research, we reference so that you avoid being accused of plagiarism by stealing other people’s work. It allows people who read my essay or assignments to find where I have gathered the information from so that they can relate and build a stronger knowledge. It also demonstrates my ideas and abilities to find research for my work from others. With referencing I will sometimes have to include a bibliography, this will allow quick sources of information. Referencing is used with information and quotes out of books, magazines articles, internet, images, blogs, YouTube, maps, pod casts, television, films and adverts.
