It is crucial in academic writing to
   acknowledge the work of others in support
   of your argument. Plagiarism is a growing
   problem in HE and at UoB there are
   disciplinary procedures for anyone caught
   plagiarising other people’s work.

There is a specially designed web page on
 the UoB web site which covers all aspects
 of referencing:

     word a paragraph from a
     journal article/book
2.   When you copy word for
     word a paragraph from a web

• It is important to acknowledge any other
  person’s ideas/words that you include in
  your work, either directly or indirectly. If
  you do not make reference to someone
  else’s ideas/work you may be accused of
  passing it off as your own (plagiarism).
Which style of referencing does the UoB use
         (except the Med School)?
