Using Sources Ethically
The LSU Code of Student Conduct defines plagiarism as the "[l]ack of appropriate citation, or the unacknowledged inclusion of someone else's words, structure, ideas, or data; failure to identify a source, or the submission of essentially the same work for two assignments without permission of the instructor(s)." (LSU Code of Student Conduct 10.1.H)
You changed a few words and cited the source, so you are safe from plagiarism, right? Wrong. Read the Office of Student Advocacy & Accountability's article on paraphrasing. You also need to cite when you are summarizing.
MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities. This resource, updated to reflect the MLA Handbook (8th ed.), offers examples for the general format of MLA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the Works Cited page.
