Business: Evaluating & Citing Sources

Evaluating Sources

APA 7th edition

Avoiding Plagiarism

Best practices to avoid plagiarism:

  • Make direct quotations obvious with quotation marks or indentations
  • Paraphrase by changing the language of the source idea as much as possible
  • When in doubt: cite your source
  • In your notes and working drafts, label ideas that aren't your own
  • Save citations as you research, so you won't need to find them again
