Referencing Support

ft MBAIt is essential that whenever you use information or refer to another author’s work in your assignments or thesis that you acknowledge them and provide full details of the source used.

Referencing correctly helps to ensure that you avoid being accused of plagiarism and allows you to demonstrate how your ideas have built upon the research of others.

 Which referencing style should I use?

Our comprehensive guide to referencing in the Harvard style can be found below. This guide provides detailed referencing tips and information on how you can avoid plagiarism. 

Cranfield University Referencing Guide - Ensure that you properly reference any resources that you use in your research. The School of Management uses the Harvard Cranfield style. If you're not sure of how to lay out your references, check our guide here. 

Numbered Referencing Guide - This guide has been produced to complement the author-date guide (above), for those students who would prefer to use a numbered referencing system as an alternative.
