What Needs to be Cited

  1. 1. What DoYou Need to Cite? Presentation by Michael Scanlon, Sheryl Scanlon, and Kate Cottle
  2. 2. What Must be Cited? ▪ Quotes ▪ Paraphrases (rephrased material) ▪ Summarized material ▪ Phrases taken from sources – 2 words or more ▪ Use of an author's argument or line of thinking ▪ Historical, statistical, or scientific facts ▪ Articles or studies you may refer to within your text (American PsychologicalAssociation [APA], 2009; Perrin, 2012)
  3. 3. What Does NOT Need to be Cited? ▪ Proverbs, axioms, and sayings ("A stitch in time saves nine.") ▪ Well-known quotations ("The personal is political.") ▪ Common knowledge (Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, oxygen's atomic number is 8, orVincent Van Gogh painted "Starry Night.") – Rule of thumb: if you can find the information in ten sources exactly the same, it's common knowledge – However, if it is specific to your profession and people outside of it may not know it, then cite it. (APA, 2009; Perrin, 2012)
  4. 4. So, Again,What Needs to Be Cited? ▪ If the thought did not originate with you, you must cite it. ▪ If the thought did not originate with you, but everyone knows it (including people outside of your field), you don’t need to cite it. ▪ If you’re not sure whether to cite it or not, cite it. ▪ You can’t go wrong with being cautious, especially when it comes to APA and academic writing.
