Citation and Academic Integrity, Part II: What's in a Citation?

General Workshops

Kathryn Renton, Graduate Writing Consultant

Incorporating research into graduate writing raises complex questions about citing the work of other scholars. Do you always need to provide a citation? When should you quote and when should you paraphrase? Good citation practices, like good writing practices, bring clarity and integrity to academic work. This interactive workshop provides a variety of practice scenarios that will test your knowledge and demonstrate how to apply ethical citation guidelines in your own writing. (Approx. 20 mins. Recorded in 2012.)
For further reference, see the Guidelines to Citation Practices and Citation Styles web pages.
