Style & Citation Guides
Citation can be an overwhelming part of writing a research paper. Questions abound over how to correctly format citations as well as which style to use in the first place. This page contains links to helpful examples and guidelines to the most common style formats, including MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian, and CSE.
Tips on Avoiding Plagiarism
The word plagiarism comes from the Latin “plagium,” meaning “kidnapping”; in writing, it relates to improperly using someone else’s words, ideas, or images as your own. In American academics, you must cite all information that you borrow from research sources. If you do not, it is considered plagiarism, a serious academic offense. The sites on this page give more detailed information on what constitutes plagiarism and the steps you as a writer can take to avoid it.
