Recognizing Intellectual Property

You must acknowledge outside sources in your paper by citing the sources in the body of the paper (in-text citations) and on the reference page. There are three main ways of using outside sources in your paper: quoting directly, paraphrasing, and summarizing. Each of those requires an in-text citation and a reference page entry.

In-Text Citations

Direct quotations use two or more words taken word-for-word from the source.

• Enclose direct quotations—the original author’s words—in double quotation marks to differentiate between your words and the original author’s words.
• Include the page or paragraph number of the original material in parentheses after the quotation. This will help your reader locate the original information quickly and easily.
• If you mention the author’s name in your sentence, include the year of publication in parentheses after the name. Otherwise, place both the author’s name and the year in parentheses after the quotation.

Example: According to Mandelbrot and Hudson (2004), “This equilibrium market clearing price is automatically interpreted as being the mean of a normal probability distribution” (p. 46).
