- Paraphrase and summarize where possible. When borrowing another person's exact words, use quotation marks.
- Include a Works Cited page at the end of your paper to validate your work and give credit to the authors/creators of information that you use.
- Use parenthetical documentation/citation
by inserting information about the source "in parenthesis after the
ideas taken from that source" (Sebranek, Kemper and Meyer 282). In-text
parenthetical documentation links to the Works Cited page at the end of
Son of Citation Machine helps you cite your information sources and copy and paste into a document (Google Doc or Word) to format..
