About Citing Web Sites

When citing a web site, take note of the title, date of publication, author or publisher, place of publication, and the date you accessed the site. 

You must always include the URL at the end of your citation.

The title of any resource retrieved online is followed by the medium designator [Internet].

Avoiding Plagiarism

Here are three different ways you can present information you have found in your research to consciously avoid plagiarizing.

1. Direct quote

When you use or copy the exact words or section of words from an author, you can surround that direct quote by quotation marks. Include the correct citation acknowledging the original author in your sentence.

2. Summary

Write a summary using your own words of the ideas or the text you want to use. Be original without using the words of the original work and be sure you cite that statement.

3. Paraphrase

Paraphrasing is similar to a summary. It just means taking what you have read and rewriting it in your own words. You must cite that paraphrase.
