  3. 3. Why cite?  Proper citation is a key element in academic writing and intellectual exchange. When we cite we:  show respect for the work of others;  help a reader to distinguish our work from the work of others;  give the reader the opportunity to check the validity of our use of other people’s work;  give the reader the opportunity to follow up our references, out of interest;  show and receive proper credit for our research process;  demonstrate that we are able to use reliable sources and critically assess them to support our work;  establish the credibility and authority of our knowledge and ideas;  share the blame (if we get it wrong);
  4. 4. What to cite  As creators/authors, we are expected to acknowledge any materials or ideas that are not ours and that have been used in any way, such as quotation, paraphrase or summary.

  5. 5. WHEN DO I NEED TO CITE?  Whenever you borrow words or ideas:  whenever you use quotes  whenever you paraphrase  whenever you use an idea that someone else has already expressed  whenever you make specific reference to the work of another  whenever someone else's work has been critical in developing your own ideas.
  6. 6.
