"Referencing is the practice of acknowledging in your own writing the intellectual work of others; work that has been presented in some way into the public domain."
From: The Complete Guide to Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism” by Colin Neville (2007). Open University Press, Maidenhead. ISBN: 9780335220892
The Clinical Librarian offers referencing training sessions that can be tailored to your needs. The session usually lasts an hour and can be delivered to individuals or groups. The training can be carried out virtually (via MS Teams), in the Library Training Room or at a location to suit you.
Please note, that every institution and journal uses its own, slightly different, refencing style, which will be available either online or through their website or portal. If you book a Referencing training session with us, we will ask you to send us a current copy of the relevant style guide (or a link to it) so we can be sure we are tailoring the teaching to the style you need to use.
