  • Serious offense! Easy to avoid – all you have to do is correctly cite your sources.When we copy other people’s information, we are not learning the research skills that we might need later to succeed.
  • When you quote or paraphrase from one of your sources within your paper, you MUST cite your source both in-text and on your references page.
  • When quoting, be sure to include the page number on which you found the quote.Using another person’s exact words is acceptable AS LONG AS you use quotation marks around the quoted words and properly cite the source.
  • This means rephrasing the words of someone else. It is acceptable AS LONG AS the meaning is not changed and the originator is credited properly with a citation. Notice for Paraphrase examples, there is no page number.

    “This difficulty could be attributed to the fact that many students failed to purchase a style manual” (Jones, 1998, p. 199).
    If your quote is longer than 40 words, indent 5 additional spaces in both the left and right margins.
    AND
    If no date is found, use n.d. in its place.
