Research 101: Citing Your Sources
Experts on your subject:
articles in journals
articles in newspapers
television episodes
Cite your source every single time
that you do any of the following:
1. quote word for word (direct quote)
2. put in your own words (paraphrase)
3. reduce it in your own words (summary)
You cite a source in two places:
1. At the end of the sentence where you quoted, paraphrased, or summarized the source (in-text citation)
2. At the end of your paper (Works Cited)
3. Improper paraphrasing or summarizing:
putting an author's ideas into your own words without giving the author proper credit
2. Mosaic Plagiarism:
mixing copied phrases or even just words in with your own work
also called patch-writing

failing grades
being kicked out of college
being fired
being sued
(These are just a few possible consequences.)
