Citing Your Sources

Citing your sources is an important part of the writing process. Documenting your sources gives credit to authors whose thoughts and ideas you have incorporated into your work. By citing your work, you will strengthen your position and show the depth of your research. Most importantly, proper citation will help you avoid plagiarism.

There are hundreds of citation styles, please verify the citation format that your professor expects you to use. The most common citation format for the social sciences is the American Psychological Association (APA).  Please see the APA Style Citation LibGuide  created by the UTEP Library for more information. You can also view the APA Style Tutorial created by APA or the  Purdue OWL: APA Guide by Purdue Online Writing Lab.
