Citations for Beginners was developed to help young researchers understand:
- what plagiarism is
- why citations are created (to acknowledge or give credit to the original author, to allow others to find the source themselves, and to demonstrate to your instructor that you’re capable of locating high quality resources)
- the format and components of a citation in MLA format
- the purpose of using citation generator websites, such as EasyBib, to develop citations

Here’s an example:
- Manage your time and plan your work – ensure that you have enough time to prepare, read and write
- When paraphrasing an author’s text, ensure that you use your own words and a sentence structure sufficiently different from the original text
- In your notes, highlight in colour/bold any direct quotations you want to use in your assignment – this will help to ensure you use quotation marks with an appropriate reference when you are writing up your work
- Allow enough time to check your final draft for possible referencing errors or omissions: for example, check that all your in-text citations have a corresponding entry in your reference list, and vice versa
- Save all your notes, files, printouts and so on until you receive your final mark or grade.

Pages should be numbered (along with your last name) in the top right header of the paper.
