In Text Citation
In text citation is used to identify all direct quotations, ideas and paraphrased comments, that are not your own.
When writing an assignment, each time information is used from a source, cite the source that it came from. To cite a source, simply put the author's name, the date of the publication and the page number in parentheses (Author, date, page no) in the text. If using the authors name in the text only put date and page number in parentheses (date, page no). If the person reading the report wants to find the information and read more about it, they can look up the reference in the bibliography for more detail about the source.
Lewis (1997,p30) states that 'A bibliography is used for all works cited in the text and other relevant works consulted in the preparation of the text.'
Foxe (2001, p.110-111) says attitudes are difficult to measure because there is much controversy over what an attitude is.
See Student Manual for more examples.
See How to do an in-text citation
Plagiarism is the use of another persons words or ideas without citing where they are from.
Anything you want to use that someone else, writes, emails, draws or implies, needs to be acknowledged.
All of the following are considered plagiarism:
* turning in someone else's work as your own
* copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
* failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
* giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
* changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
* copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not
