5. Citing & Plagiarism

Your instructor will let you know which citation style to follow for citing your sources. 
[MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.]
When conducting research, maintain a record of all your source's citation elements.
[author, title, publication information, etc.]
Then compare your citation elements with an example and replicate the format exactly.
[element order, punctuation, capitalization, spacing, & font]
