General Information about Citing Sources

Remember to cite your sources if you are...

  • quoting from the source directly
  • paraphrasing someone else's words
  • using someone else's data or statistics
  • using someone else's pictures, photographs or other not text material

When creating a reference list remember...

  • Your sources should be listed in alphbetical order by authors last name
  • Only the authors name should be flush against the margin so you need to indent each subsequent row of text after the first one. This includes annotations.
  • Don't rely on the robot. Automatic citation makers will put everything in the correct order but will not correct for spelling, or capitalization so always double check your results
