structure of a source without giving credit

copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not Turn paper writing on its head! Create your bibliography

This means that things that you already know, like how to use a fork or the importance of education, do not need citations. Bibliographies can be made online (Collins, 2008), which would make writing a bibliography easier and faster.
