- Keep a back-up copy of all work on a device other than your computer in case you experience computer problems.
- Use the Study Support Hub and Ask the Library to check your assignment meets the criteria
- Reference check – check that you have applied the RMIT Harvard (or Harvard if you are using EndNote) referencing style
- Check for plagiarism and similarity through Turnitin – see the Assignment submission link in Canvas. You can submit your paper multiple times through Turnitin. The last submission will be the copy that will be marked.
