Harvard UTS Referencing Guide

Referencing is an essential part of academic communication. It serves five main purposes:

  • To support claims, arguments and assertions in your work.
  • To show evidence of reading and research.
  • To give credit to the authors of any material that you have referred to in your work.
  • To help readers find the sources of information you have cited.
  • To ensure academic integrity and avoid accusations of plagiarism.
