Academic Writing: Plagiarism and Referencing

In this video, Richard Galletly (Academic English lecturer at Aston University) presents a guide to avoiding plagiarism in your writing, and introduces some ideas to help with your referencing. This guide is intended for students at UK universities in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The ideas found here are a synthesis of the current research into plagiarism and how to avoid it, including ideas from East (2009), Ellery (2008) and Hyland (2010). The concept of using summarising and parpaphrasing to avoid accidental plagiarism is questioned here, and the use of effective reflection, discussion, critical evaluation and commentary on sources is encouraged.
