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