Remember you must cite anytime that you:

  • Directly quote from a source (book, website, article, song, interview, etc.)
  • Restate an author's idea, theory or opinion in any way; rewording, changing the order, or summarizing someone else's work without proper citations is plagiarism
  • Use statistics, results or findings derived by another author or source
  • Cite case studies, experiments, experimental methods, or results
  • Insert visuals (charts, photos, drawings, videos or any image) not clearly labeled as free from copyright restriction
