ICMAC: Citing references

A guide to finding information relevant to ICMAC. Includes links to key resources and sources of help.

General guidance

Whenever you refer to another person's work in your own essay, dissertation or article you must acknowledge them and give full details of your source. You risk being accused of plagiarism if you fail to do so.

For general information on referencing, including an explanation of different citation systems, and guidance on citing specific types of publication, see our Citing references guide. For an overview of options for managing references electronically, see our guide to Managing references.

For help with citing specific types of publication contact your academic liaison librarians (details below).

For advice on using references in your work, and how to use them to support your arguments, consult the guidance on the Study Advice website or make an appointment with them.
