Referencing and Plagiarism

What is Referencing?

Referencing is how you give credit to the sources you have used in creating your work.

There are different ways of doing this, most of Leeds Beckett University uses Harvard or an Author-Year style, details about Harvard referencing are in Quote, Unquote.

There are two other types of referencing used by specific schools:

  • Law uses OSCOLA
  • Psychology uses APA (click on the APA referencing tab)

For all other schools and subjects use Quote, Unquote
