Cite Your Sources Guide

I'm writing my first university paper. What do I need to know? (not just for first papers) from Writing Support, University of Toronto.

Exercise on Citation and Paraphrase by Judy Hunter, Grinnell College. This exercise consists of two sections. The first section demonstrates how writers incorporate words and ideas from a source. That is, it provides models of how writers paraphrase, use a long quotation, quote only a few words, and cite an idea. In doing so, the section demonstrates the Modern Language Association, or MLA, style of citation. The second section asks you to perform the same tasks modeled in the first section.

Plagiarism: What It is and How to Recognize and Avoid It from Writing Tutorial Services, Indiana University, Bloomington. Includes:

  • How to Recognize Unacceptable and Acceptable Paraphrases (with examples)

  • Strategies for Avoiding Plagiarism

  • Terms You Need to Know (or What is Common Knowledge?)
