When should I cite my information?

Researchers do not claim the ideas and words of other researchers as their own.  Researchers should give credit where credit is due.

You cite material when:

  • You use the ideas or words of another
  • whether this use is a direct quote or is paraphrased
  • Historical, statistical, or scientific facts. 
  • Graphs, drawings, or images.


You do not need to document:

  • Proverbs, axioms, or well know phrases. 
  • Common knowledge

If you are not sure what to do, it is better to cite.

Citation ensures the accuracy of knowledge and protects intellectual property rights.
