Transcript

  • 1. Using Research ENGL 1010 Keri De Deo
  • 2. Using Sources
    • Use your sources to support your ideas.
      • Do not simply string together a series of quotations.
      • Introduce quotes you use—who is this person, what are his/her credentials, why should the reader trust the quote?
      • Explain quotes you use—tell us how they relate to the point you are making. Do not assume that the quote’s point is obvious.
  • 3. More on Using Sources
    • Use the quotations fairly and honestly—tell us what is there:
      • Do not manipulate the quote to sound like it supports your point when it really does not.
      • Triple-check your quotations to make sure they are completely accurate (including punctuation). Misquoting is just as serious as plagiarizing.
      • Give credit for other writers’ ideas and words.
  • 4. What to Cite:
    • Cite sources for any information that is not general information (652).
    • If you’re not sure it’s general or not, cite it.
    • If you find a source that agrees with your idea, or is related, go ahead and cite the source. It shows you’ve done your homework.
  • 5. Avoid Plagiarism
    • Failure to cite your sources correctly can result in plagiarism, which in turn can result in failure of this course.
    • See the following Web site on definitions & discussions. http://www.plagiarism.org/
    • You may think you know what plagiarism is, but you might be surprised. Read the information anyway.
  • 6. Kinds of Citations
    • Parenthetical citations (in-text citations)
    • Works Cited, Reference, or Bibliography page (we use the title ‘Works Cited’ in this class)
    • Content or Supplementary Notes (MLA style does not support the use of notes; use them sparingly)
  • 7. In Brief: How to Cite a Source (MLA)
    • In-text (parenthetical) citations:
      • End of the sentence in parentheses
      • If the author’s name is in the sentence, only the page number is needed.
      • The in-text citations refer readers to the end of your paper in a Works Cited page;
      • Refer to the textbook or handbook for more specific information.
  • 8. Citing a Source…
    • Works Cited page:
      • Appears at the end of the essay (does not count as part of your page minimum).
      • Sources listed alphabetically by author’s last name.
      • All title formatting applies.
      • The sources you list in your text must appear on your Works Cited page.
      • Refer to http://bcs.bedfordstmartins.com/resdoc5e/ for help on citing sources in addition to the textbook.
  • 9. Avoiding Plagiarism
    • Make sure to quote your source exactly as written.
    • Cite even summarized or paraphrased passages.
    • Match your in-text citations with your Works Cited page.
