CS 360 (Ghane) Computer Network Systems: Writing and Citing

Resources

Ask a librarian if you need help finding a citation, or if you are unsure of when to cite.

Go to the writing center or ask your professor for help formatting citations properly.

Avoid Plagiarism

  • Keep careful research notes and keep track of citations and where your information comes from.

  • Copy and paste judiciously

  • Remember that most of the words you are using should be yours. Quotes from sources should be used to bolster your ideas.

  • If you paraphrase or quote, you need to cite.  Other people's ideas need to be credited as well as their quoted words.
