You should reference the source of your information whenever you:

  • quote using someone else's exact words
  • paraphrase or summarise what they said
  • use their idea, their structure, their photo or diagram ...

The only time you don't need to reference is when something is 'common knowledge'.

More information is available in the Referencing guide.

Please note you should always refer to any departmental/school guidelines you’ve been given.
