Now that you have completed your research and have all of the information you need, it is time to start putting it all together. To be successful it is important to keep the following tips in mind.
Why is it important to cite your sources?
See the Library Guide: Citing your Sources for more information about citations and styles.
Why is plagiarism wrong?
Use your own words and sentence structure as much as you can.
When you feel that another author's words say it best, place quotation marks around their original words.
Cite every quote, paraphrase, summary, and any information you obtained from another source.
Make sure all the references at the end of your paper are complete and accurate.
