Avoiding Plagiarism in your work
When writing up your projects, assignments or an essay, it is important for you to provide details of various books, journals, articles etc. that you have consulted. To do this a formal referencing system is required – Harvard is the preferred method for EBMA.

Applying, analysing, criticising or quoting other people’s work is perfectly reasonable and accepting providing you always:-

  • Attempt to summarise or restate another person’s work, theories or ideas and given acknowledgement to that person. This is usually done by citing your sources and presenting a list of references. OR
  • By always using quotation marks to distinguish between actual of the writer and your own words. Once again, you should cite all sources and present full details of these in your list of references.

Learners should reference evidence in assignments in the following situations:-

  • To inform the reader of the sources of tables, statistics, diagrams, photographs and other illustrations included in your assignment.
  • When describing or discussing a theory, model, practice or example associated with a particular writer; or using their work to illustrate examples in your text.
  • To give weight or creditability to an argument supported by you in your assignment.
  • When giving emphasis to a particular theory, model or practice that has found a measure of agreement and support amongst commentators.
  • To inform the reader of the sources of direct quotations or definitions in your assignments.
