Why Cite?

Citing sources is a core responsibility of any academic writer whether it is applied to a quotation or a paraphrase. Any person's writing is her or her own intellectual property and should be respected and protected. Students who use information derived from someone else's research and writing must give credit to the author by citing that work.

Cite the source for every idea, phrase and statistic you use from the work of others.

Select one citation format for each assignment and use it consistently, or follow your instructor's directions regarding citation style.
