Reference Management & Plagiarism

There are a wide variety of tools which are freely available to help you with citing and creating reference lists. However, none of them are perfect. So it is important you know your referencing style and what is expected. With that caveat you can try these tools:

  • iFind, the library catalogue cite tool
  • Endnote 

You can always come to see your librarian for help.


It is important you read the Swansea University Academic Misconduct Procedure. Failure to acknowledge another person’s work (i.e. properly citing it in a paper) will result in serious consequences. 
Plagiarism is defined as using, without acknowledgment, another person's work and submitting it for assessment as though it were one's own work; for instance, through copying or unacknowledged paraphrasing. This constitutes plagiarism whether it is intentional or unintentional.
