To avoid plagiarism you must cite any information and ideas which are not your own. Style guides provide examples of the correct format for creating in-text citations and reference lists. Before beginning your paper, be sure to ask your instructor which style to use in your paper.
The links below are to citation generators. These are sites that allow you to add citation information to a form and submit it, and then receive a properly formatted citation in the style of your choosing. They work for APA, MLA, and other major citation styles.
NOTE: Be sure to check the references generated by these tools against a style manual or other credible source.
