A citation shows the reader or viewer of your project where you found your information.
Citations are included in the body of a project when you add a quote into your project.
Be sure to provide enough information so your readers can locate the source on their own.
Retrieved from the APA manual does not give direct information for citing every type of source, including charts or graphs, they instruct you to follow the example that is most like the source you are trying to cite.
Scholarly Article Note: Do not set off the title of the article with quotes, italics, underlines, or capital letters (except for the first word, proper names or after a colon).
Use the author's or editor's initials only for first and middle names.
Changing or modifying quotes, text, or any work of another individual is also plagiarism.
Believe it or not, you can even plagiarize yourself!
Look on the last page of a research project to find complete citations.
Complete citations are found on what is called an MLA works cited page, which is sometimes called an MLA bibliography.
