References in academia

If you have created a project in the university and you have embedded some useful material that you want to use in another project, after a semester let’s say, you have to reference yourself, in case you would like to sue yourself for plagiarism! I believe that this is one of the issues that drives academia and university curriculum further and further away from the reality nowadays and undermines the time spent for research-instead of spending time thinking creatively, we try to get the references just right to avoid plagiarism detection.
