'Yes You Do Need To Reference That': a Crash Course in Good Academic Practice (for researchers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine)

Thu 27 May 2021


Referencing where you got ideas and inspiration from for your research is a core skill for any good researcher. In this session, you will be shown handy tools, such as the reference manager Zotero, that can do a lot of the hard work for you as well as managing your literature and reading throughout your research and beyond.

The session will also give some tips on how to avoid being caught out through bad referencing techniques as well as the University of Cambridge's approach to plagiarism.

We will use a combination of live demonstrations, discussions and quizzes to help you apply your knowledge and get to grips with your referencing needs!
