When do you need to cite?
- Quote directly from another’s work.
- Use a graphic, chart or image (or part of one) that you did not create from scratch.
- Paraphrase something written by another. Putting it in your own words does not do the trick. You still need to cite it!
- Give credit for a unique idea that advances a field of scholarship and isn’t part of the usual “general body of knowledge” about a topic.
