Recognising other people’s creative and intellectual work is an important aspect of digital citizenship.  One of the essential ways we do this, as a student is to acknowledge where we obtained the information and ideas we include in our assignments.  Every time you refer to another person’s work or ideas within your assignment you must immediately acknowledge the author.  This is called in-text referencing.
