Citing and referencing

Citing and referencing the material consulted for a piece of academic work not only enables others to verify facts  and ideas in your work more easily, but also ensures you are acting in an ethical and honest manner.

Acknowledgement may be in the form of  in text citations, footnotes, endnotes and/or a bibliography.
