Citing your previous assignments in new work

Citing your previous assignments in new work

Although in academia it is conventional to refer to your own, previously published work, it is not good practice to refer to a previous assignment written by yourself in a new piece of work, whether that be directly quoting or paraphrasing.

It is, of course perfectly acceptable to re-use references / information sources which you have used in an earlier piece of work so long as you re-phrase the information in the new document and reference it fully.

Referencing      
This guide uses the UoB-Harvard system. Always consult your unit handbook or tutor to make sure you are using the correct system for the unit. Some subjects use other systems.
