Plagiarism can be prevented by using precise textual references and entries in your reference list.
Plagiarism is the reproduction of somebody else’s work or ideas, presenting it as your own without giving recognition to that person. This represents academic or intellectual theft. When you write a sentence in your academic report or writing, without a reference or quoting it in inverted commas, it implies that it is your own work or idea. However, if this is not the case, you have committed plagiarism – a very serious transgression in academic circles. Even when you translate a sentence or part of another author’s work, or if you describe it in your own words (paraphrase), you still have to give credit to that author through an in-text reference and entry in the reference list for that source.
The author-date, or Harvard, style of referencing is widely accepted in academic publications, although you may see a number of variations in the way it is used.
The information and examples on these pages are based on the Australian Style manual for authors, editors and printers, 6th edition.
