Plagiarism is taken very seriously by the University and may result in expulsion from the University. Referencing is not only about acknowledging other people's work; accurate referencing and lists of references are beneficial when researching a topic as they allow the reader to follow up information and read further in the area. In a sense, references provide readers with clues to help them explore different avenues of a topic. This aspect of referencing will become more valuable to you as you progress in your studies. There is a correct procedure that must be followed when referencing and using footnotes. Not complying with these set techniques and format will most likely result in loss of marks. When writing an essay it is easiest to reference as you go, making sure you are writing down all relevant information. This will save hours trying to find the source again in the library. THE HARVARD SYSTEM OF REFERENCING AND CITATION OF INTERNET SOURCES The Faculty of Business uses the Harvard system of referencing. This system makes use of short references within the body of the text. It is supplemented by a detailed list of references at the end of the text, which provides all the information necessary to find the source material. In-text references include the author and year of publication, and where necessary the page number(s). It is necessary for students to reference all sources used in their written work, including file transfer protocol sites, worldwide web sites, telnet sites, synchronous communications (MOOs, MUDs, IRC, etc.) GOPHER sites, email, Listserv and Newsgroup citations. It is the responsibility of students to ensure that they are familiar with the Harvard system of referencing and with the accepted Faculty of Business practice for referencing electronic material and that they use it accurately in all written work submitted. Students should consult the following University Library website for a detailed explanation of the Harvard system of referencing and examples of how to reference electronic material ACADEMIC COMPLAINTS In accordance with the Coursework Student Academic Complaints Policy, a student may request an explanation of a mark for an assessment task or a final grade for a subject consistent with the student's right to appropriate and useful feedback on their performance in an assessment task.
