Referencing is an important and mandatory requirement and failure to provide will result in possible penalization from Academic Submissions.

Plagiarism
To explain what plagiarism is “It is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas in developing your assignments or any work submitted”.
Examples of plagiarism might include:
• Copying another person’s work without acknowledging them as the author. This might be verbatim, by using sections of their work and only changing a few words, or by using phrases or quotes from their work. Even if there are occasional references this may still be deemed as plagiarism. If quotations marks are missing this might also be deemed as plagiarism.
• The presentation of someone else’s ideas as their own.
Collusion
Collusion occurs when two or more individuals collaborate to produce a piece of work to be submitted (in whole or in part) for assessment and the work is presented as the work of one student alone.
Referencing is a way to acknowledge that you have used the ideas or written materials belonging to another author. You should give full references for all the materials you use in assignments including books, journals, videos and websites. The style of referencing that you are required to follow is the “Harvard referencing style”.
