MLA and APA

Citations

Welcome to your source for citation help! Please see the example papers on this page, or click to the required citation format for more information. Remember that it is necessary for you to cite any sources you use, even if you're not quoting them directly!

Plagiarism is:

1. copying and pasting without citing sources, using quotation marks, or paraphrasing

2. self-plagiarism - reusing work you have previously written and turned in

3. creating fake citations

4. substituting synonyms for words in a passage that has been copied and pasted

5. paraphrasing multiple passages from multiple sources

 

What should I use?

Not sure what types of citations to use? Your assignment likely says, so check there first. A general rule is that Science uses APA and Humanities uses MLA.
