When, why, and how to cite

When you directly quote, paraphrase, or reference another source that has influenced your own work, you need to provide a proper citation. You should also provide documentation for any statistics or facts that are not considered common knowledge.

Citation is necessary to:

  • Avoid charges of plagiarism
  • Give credit to the original author or creator
  • Provide context for your audience
  • Allow readers to find and consult the source themselves

The citation format required for this course is American Psychological Association (APA) 7th edition. 

The link below provides further information on how to correctly cite in this format.
