    **Newspaper article, usually references not given. Academic journal article: bibliography / references essential

    Students are part of an academic community in which we all share and discuss ideas and in this way develop and improve our own ideas. This is done freely, but on the basis that we acknowledge the source of the ideas we are working with.

    academic integrityallows those reading our work to follow up the original sources for themselves. Proper referencing of appropriate sources shows that the work is built on solid foundations. Credit will be given for this when the work is marked.
