What is a citation?
A “citation” is the way you tell your readers that certain material in your work came from another source. It also gives your readers the information necessary to find that source again, including:
· the title of the work
· the name and location of the company that published your copy of the source
· the date your copy was published
· the page numbers of the material you are borrowing.
What do we cite?
Cite quotations, paraphrases, statistics and all borrowed ideas.
