When and What Do I Cite?

Cite anything you write or create that uses or refers to the ideas of another person, including:
  • direct quotations

  • paraphrasing of passages

  • indebtedness to another person for an idea

  • use of another student's work

  • use of your own previous work

You do not need to cite information that is common knowledge.
