COMPILING A BIBLIOGRAPHY OR LIST OF REFERENCES
One of the most important tenets of academic writing is the avoidance of plagiarism. A Bibliography contains all sources consulted, including those providing background reading; a list of References comprises only sources cited in the text. Even if you have paraphrased (that is, put the author’s words into your own words) or summarised information, the author or authors should be acknowledged in a textual reference, and, of course, in the Bibliography/References. The Bibliography/References is the backbone of research writing, and should be compiled correctly and consistently, according to established academic and bibliographic stylistic conventions. The Cape Peninsula University of Technology uses the Harvard style of
