Citing and referencing

What this module is about

The aim of this module is to help you understand the need for citing and referencing, and when and how to do it.

More formally, by the end of this module, learners should:

  • know when they need to add a citation
  • know how to format in-text citations
  • know how to format a reference list
  • be aware of tools that can help with managing citations.

How it works

You’ll be presented with a series of pages. Please read through them and attempt any activities. When you complete an activity, click ‘Check’, and some feedback (and sometimes more content) will be revealed.

Use the ‘previous’ and ‘next’ links to move forward and back through the module. You can visit any page as often as you like.

Each activity is accompanied by possible answers, though sometimes there is no one right answer.
