When should we cite sources
Citation is used to distinguish your words and ideas from the ideas and words of another. You should provide a citation in your academic work in four situations When you quote a source. You should clearly indicate words taken verbatim from another source by (1) placing quotation marks around the quoted material or using a block indent for longer quotes, AND (2) providing a citation for the quote. Providing only a citation fora quote without placing quotation marks or a block indent around the quoted words is not sufficient. When you paraphrase a source. When you are using content and ideas from another source but placing them in your own words, you should cite the source. When you summarize information from a source. When you condense the ideas from a source into a summary, you should cite the source. When you use facts or data in your work. Facts that constitute common knowledge do not have to be cited. All other facts or data in a paper should be referenced. It’s not always clear what facts constitute common knowledge, so if you are unsure it’s best to consult your TA or professor. When in doubt, cite the information. Information that typically requires citation include statistics, descriptions of specific methods or events, technical definitions, data results from experiments, and the opinions, arguments or reasoning of experts. If you are in doubt about whether you should cite a source, the safest thing to do is to cite it.
