Q. How do I avoid plagiarism?
To avoid plagiarism you must always clearly acknowledge in your assignments when you are quoting or paraphrasing the work of someone else. This method of acknowledging other people’s work is called referencing.
Most departments at LSBU ask you to follow the LSBU Harvard Referencing style. Other types of referencing include OSCOLA (used by Law), APA (used by Psychology) and IEEE Numeric style (used by some engineering departments). If you’re not sure which style you need to follow, check your module guides or ask your lecturers.
