Citing and referencing correctly

To avoid cheating and plagiarism it is important that you always acknowledge the sources you have used.

The way you reference can differ between Faculties and subjects and sometimes even within the same Faculty and subject. 

To help you along the way the libraries at Lund University have developed numerous resources on academic integrity and reference management, The University has also developed two open online courses in academic writing (one in Swedish and one in English). With the help of these you can avoid ending up at the Disciplinary board for not giving credit when credit is due.
