  • Citations  Why Citations?  Give Credit For Information AND Quotations  Demonstrate Your Familiarity With The Sources  Demonstrates Your Integrity and Authority  Allows Others to “Reproduce Your Results”  So . . .  Your citations have to take others to EXACTLY where you got your information 6
  • Different Kinds of Citations  Footnotes go at the BOTTOM of each PAGE  Endnotes go at the END of the PAPER  This is NOT a Works Cited page  Numbers are consecutive in the text and the notes  Each citation in text (designated w/ superscript number) refers to a distinct source or list of sources. 7
  • Footnotes 8
  • Endnotes 9
  • Inserting A Footnote in Word 2007 Click “Reference” Click “Insert Footnote” Program will insert number at Cursor Take you to bottom of page Begin typing citation 10
  • Citation Elements: Book  Elements:  Author (followed by comma)  Book Title (Italicized, no comma)  Publication Information (enclosed in parentheses)  Place (followed by colon)  Publisher Name (followed by comma)  Date (close parentheses, followed by comma)  Page Numbers (followed by period)  Example: 1Paul 11 Casdorf, Let the Good Times Roll: Life At Home in American During World War II (New York: Paragon House, 1989), 78-79, 136-37.
  • Citation Element: Journal Article  Elements        Author (comma) Article Title (in quotation marks, comma before last) Journal Title (Italicized, NO comma after) Journal Volume (comma after) Issue Number (preceded by “no.”) Issue Date (in parentheses, followed by colon) Page Number(s) (followed by period)  Example 2 12 William Warren Rogers, Jr., “For The Destruction of Radicalism: A Reconstruction Case Study,” The Alabama Review 62, no. 3 (July 2009): 193, 197.
  • Citation Elements: Websites  Elements      Author or Owner (comma) Article Title (in quotation marks, comma inside last) Site Title (followed by comma) URL Date Accessed (in parentheses, with “accessed,” followed by period)  Example 3Kheel Center of Cornell University and UNITE!, “Introduction,” The Triangle Factory Fire, http:// www.ilr.cornell.edu/trianglefire/narrative1.html (accessed June 12, 2007). 13
  • When you use a source more than once  Don’t make full citations in every note  Subsequent Citations  Short Title  Author’s Last Name (comma)  Shortened Title (italicized, followed by comma)  Page Numbers (period)  Ibid. (include the period—it’s an abbreviation)  Use when a citation is exactly the same as the immediate preceding citation  Add page numbers if different 14
  • Examples of Citations, incl. Subsequents 1Paul Casdorph, Let the Good Times Roll: Life at Home in America During World War II (New York: Paragon House, 1998), 78-79. 2Richard Lingman, Don’t You Know There’s A War On?

  • Plagiarism  Severe violation of Academic Honesty  Passing off someone else’s work as your own, even inadvertently  What it is . . .  Direct Copying w/o attribution and / or quotation marks  Overly-close paraphrasing  Copying the “outline” of another work  Cut-and paste from the Internet  Misusing or not using quotation marks 16
