Citing and Documenting Research
 

Why? Properly documenting sources used for research is important because it ensures that:

  • Credit for information originally provided elsewhere is given,
  • Others can find the same information again, and
  • Plagiarism (passing off the ideas or words of another as one's own) does not take place.

 

Resources

  • Citations Guide (PC) Covers citation styles including MLA, APA and CSE.   It also includes information on how to avoid plagiarism.

 

Style guides based on the "MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th ed.)".

 

Style guides based on the "Publication manual of the American Psychological Association".

 

Style guides based on "Scientific Style and Format" from the Council of Science Editors (formerly the Council of Biology Editors).
