Why Cite?

Using someone else's words or ideas without giving them credit is called plagiarism. Avoid plagiarism by learning to correctly cite your sources any time you borrow from someone else. The Student Code Of Conduct outlines how plagiarism is defined at WT.

What is Style?

Writing styles are sets of standards for:

  • How to format a paper: font, margins, structure
  • How to structure citations, both within the text and for the list of sources at the end of the paper
  • The way a paper will be written: grammar, word usage, etc.
  • What counts as evidence in a discipline

Ask your professor what style you should be using! Use the resources bellow for more information.
