SWRK 3324: Oppression, Diversity and Social Justice: Help with Citing & Writing

Why Cite?

Citing sources is an important part of academic culture -- you're building on the contributions of others while seeking new discoveries, knowledge, and understanding.

  • Always cite sources when you use someone else's ideas or work
  • Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism, a violation of UHCL's Academic Honesty Policy, even if done unintentionally
