Academic skills: Referencing!

by sabrinakuehn

Let’s have a look at what is essential for essay-writing!

Though most of us probably have already written some academic stuff in their lives, it’s good to have a look at the basic principles of referencing again.

Do you need a guide on how to reference, what to reference and the different types of referencing? The I’d recommend this booklet, which is quite large, but this shouldn’t keep you from having a look at it, since you can find a lot of examples in there, too. An alternative is this more interactive website run by the University of Leeds.

Even if you’re already familiar with referencing, you should try out these exercises: the first one is on how to reference in general, the second one is about plagiarism.

You can’t get enough? There is more on the lovely LearnHigher website, which I almost know by heart by now 🙂
