Quoting, referencing and plagiarism

It is very important to cite and refer properly when writing an essay or a student thesis. To know how you are allowed to use someone else’s images in your own work is necessesary to avoid violating copyright.

When writing your essay, use a reference management program, such as Zotero or EndNote, to help you organize your references and create bibliographies.
