Avoiding Plagiarism By Citing Sources

When do you need to cite a resource you use for your research assignment? ALWAYS! Whether you use a direct quotation (author's exact words) or paraphrase it (putting the author's main ideas/points into your own expressions), you have to cite it.

Tip: Always check to see if your research assignment requires a certain type of citation style before you begin. If you're not sure, check with your professor!
