Read our guidelines for correctly referencing work and avoiding plagiarism.
If you are going to quote someone else (e.g. from a book or a website), it is essential that:
- You are not just copying and pasting large sections again and again from a copyrighted work and have ensured that you are follow the copyright guidelines of your country and, in particular, that of "fair dealing" (UK) or its equivalent in other countries.
- You give full credit to the original author by clearly attributing any citation in the concerned entry to him/her and by making sure that you include details of publication (e.g. title, date of publication, name of publisher). If you wish, these "details of publication" can be placed in the "Translations and references" material of the "Support Materials" section. NB, if you decide to do the latter, you must link to an edition.
