How do I use sources in my writing?

There are three ways you can integrate sources into your writing:

  • Quoting: This means including the exact words of another author in your paper without changing them.
  • Summarizing: This means giving an overview of a source’s key points.
  • Paraphrasing: This means putting another author’s ideas into your own words.

Whenever you reference a source, you must provide a citation in order to avoid plagiarism.
