What is Citation?

A citation is a way to give credit to the people whose words or ideas you use.

In the body of your paper, note the sources of your quotes or paraphrases with in-text references. See the tab above for more on that.

At the end of your paper, include a list of your sources in correct citation style.

Follow the General Guidelines tabs for the basic rules for formatting your paper.
