Citing Sources & avoiding plagiarism

  • If you use the work or ideas of others without giving proper credit, you are committing plagiarism.
  • It is important to get the correct and full citation in order to avoid plagiarism.
  • Citation is needed for any resource used in your paper, and a complete citation includes all the information for tracking down a source. For example, basic information of the item (books, journal articles, or website, etc.) such as author, date of publication, publisher, etc. are needed for citation. For journal articles, both the title of the individual article and the title of the journal in which is published, and the exact volume and issue of the journal should be included.
  • MH college suggests using the Chicago Citation Style, about which you may learn more by using the handbook of The Chicago manual of style. MH Library has two copies available (Call No: Z 253 .U69 2010). One is on the regular loan bookshelf and the other copy is on the reference book shelf. Also, you can check with the website of Chicago Citation Style

Some citation software may also help you. Currently, MH library has available EndNote.
