Citing yourself and cover pages

  1. 1. Citing Yourself and Cover Pages Dr. Andree Swanson
  2. 2. Sources? But I am an expert in… • Your reader is not aware that you are an expert in the topic you are writing on. To avoid this in the future, either cite your source or establish you, the author, as an expert. • My recommendation is to cite your source. In this way, you are further proving to the reader that you know what you are talking about. ▫ For example, I know about Servant Leadership, MBTI, and Maslow, but if I were to write an essay on any one of these topics, the instructor should ask me what my sources were for these statements of fact?
  3. 3. Do I still need to cite? • Remember, every time you provide a statement of fact, whether you are an expert on the topic or not, cite your source. This further establishes your credibility on the topic. • Now, I suppose there is one exception... ▫ if you have published academic works on the topic.  For example, I have published on certain topics…  but even when I write about these topics, I still cite myself and other authors who have written on the topic. Dr. Andree
  4. 4. Cover Pages – What is the right way? • If you were to Google APA cover pages, you will see a variety of interpretations. • Here at Ashford and at any university, you will see a variety of interpretations of the APA Cover page. • Placing your name versus the school, should never result in a loss of points.
