ANNEX 3:
QUICK GUIDE TO REFERENCING
In order to encourage national, regional and international exchanges of concepts and knowledge as well
as existing good practices in mass housing, we require you to acknowledge all the sources of
information that you have used, whether you are directly copying the words of another author (quoting)
or putting their ideas into your own words (paraphrasing). This is so you can:



prove that your work has a substantial, factual basis;
show the research you've done to reach your conclusions, and
allow your readers to identify and retrieve the references for their own use.
For the purposes of this competition, we are using the widely-accepted ‘Harvard’ referencing style. Each
reference is indicated by the author and date of the publication cited, sometimes with added
information such as page numbers. Whilst completing the competition questionnaire, you will need to
specify the Source, Reference Citation and Year (of Publication).
