When To Cite

When do you need to cite?

When you…

  • 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.
