Cite all sources that you quote, paraphrase, or refer to when writing a paper. If you do not, you may be guilty of plagiarism.

  • Sources should be cited in the text of your paper as well as at the end in a reference list. 

You are responsible for the content and organization of your citations.

  • A full explanation on how to cite sources using APA style is available in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed., available at the Library Reference Desk.

In-depth assistance is available at the SHSU Writing Center. Call (936) 294-3680 or visit them in Farrington Building, room #111.
