Student consultation


Whenever you use the words or ideas of someone else in your paper or presentation, you must cite your source. Failure to do so may be considered to be plagiarism. The most common citation styles are APA, MLA, and Chicago, but there are many others. Different disciplines use different citation styles, so please confirm with your instructor which style you should use.
