BTR820 Lecture 7

Citing vs Quoting

Quoting - using other words verbatim. (3 or more unusual words)

Citing - When you take someone elses idea. Or facts/info/methods. (facts that are not common knowledge to the audience you are writing to). You must cite if you summarize or paraphrase.

Difference between citing and footnotes/endnotes. Don't use for citation, use for parenthetical information.

... - when cutting out info from a quote .... when cutting out the end of the sentence. If ... is actually in the quote then use [...].

4 lines or more you use block quotes. (10 space indent)

Works Cited is only the works you cite... Bibliography is all the work you read.
