TO STEAL OR NOT TO STEALTHAT IS THE QUESTION.HOW TO CITE YOUR SOURCES WHEN CONDUCTING RESEARCHESSENTIAL QUESTION:WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CITE YOUR SOURCES?
WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO CREATE A WORKS CITED PAGE?WHY CITE? When you conduct research, the information you gather comes from different sources. Taking someone elses ideas or words and passing them off as your own is called

Direct Quote: Use quotation marks to show that you are using someone elses wordsEXAMPLE ONE:Cancer of the lung, like all cancers, results from an abnormality in the body's basic unit of life, the cell. Normally, the body maintains a system of checks and balances on cell growth so that cells divide to produce new cells only when new cells are needed. Disruption of this system of checks and balances on cell growth results in an uncontrolled division and proliferation of cells that eventually forms a mass known as a tumor (MedicineNet.com, 2011).Your notes might look like this:Results from abnormal cellBody has checks and balances systemCells produce new cells only when neededUncontrolled cell divisionTumor or mass is formedTo paraphrase The basic unit of life is the cell. Cancer can develop when cell division becomes uncontrolled. A great system of checks and balances usually maintains cell growth and division. Cells only reproduce when old cells need to be replaced. However, when cell division runs rampant, tumors or masses can eventually form (MedicineNet.com, 2011).To Quote Lung cancer can result from an abnormality in the bodys basic unit of life, the cell (MedicineNet.com, 2011).EXAMPLE TWO: The incidence of lung cancer is strongly correlated with cigarette smoking, with about 90% of lung cancers arising as a result of tobacco use. The risk of lung cancer increases with the number of cigarettes smoked and the time over which smoking has occurred; doctors refer to this risk in terms of pack-years of smoking history (the number of packs of cigarettes smoked per day multiplied by the number of years smoked). For example, a person who has smoked two packs of cigarettes per day for 10 years has a 20 pack-year smoking history. Among those who smoke two or more packs of cigarettes per day, one in seven will die of lung cancer (MedicineNet.com, 1011).Your notes might look like this:Cigarette smoking and lung cancer are related90% of lung cancers caused by tobacco useRisk goes up as number or cigarettes smoked goes upPack years =packs X years smoked2 packs a day = one in seven dies
To paraphrase People who smoke have a greater risk of developing lung cancer. Approximately 90% of lung cancers are found in people who have used tobacco. The more a person smokes, the higher their risk of lung cancer. Doctors base cigarette use on the number of packs smoked per day times the number of years a person has smoked. People with the highest risk are those who smoke two packs of cigarettes per day (MedicineNet.com, 2011).To Quote The more a person smokes, the higher their risk of lung cancer. Among those who smoke two or more packs of cigarettes per day, one in seven will die from lung cancer (MedicineNet.com, 2011).WORKS CITED PAGE:Separate sheet of paperAlphabetical order by authorMust follow specific format
