On this page you will find information on how best to cite in the MLA, APA, and Chicago styles.
As a general rule, you will have to cite your information when you use: ♦ Someone else’s idea(s) / ♦ Someone else’s work / ♦ Someone else’s words / ♦ Direct quotations.
As a general rule, you will not have to cite your information when you use: ♦ Undisputed facts or matters of public record / ♦ Common knowledge in your discipline / ♦ Your own ideas, experiences, or thoughts.
