Tips on Using Sources in Your Paper


Using sources is an important aspect in academic writing. 

1. Always provide a citation when using someone's words or ideas. Always.

2. Lead into the quote, paraphrase, or summary with a sentence in your own words.

3. Follow the quote, paraphrase, or summary with a sentence that relates the source back to the topic of your assignment.

4. Quotes and paraphrases should be used to validate your point and not make the bulk of your assignment.
