Why reference?

Any academic assignment or research requires references to acknowedge the authors of research, opinions, and ideas you have used in your assessment item.

This avoids plagiarism, a serious offence in the academic world.

If you don't reference anything, it is assumed that you are claiming all the ideas and opinions in your assessment item are your own.
