PHL 101 (Prof. Brown) North/Online: Write and Cite

Includes a selection of research tools for conducting biographical research on philosophers.

Why Cite?

When you research a topic you may use information from articles, books, or the Web to support your ideas. However, you must credit the original authors of these sources by citing them.  This serves two important functions.

  •   It makes it clear that you are not plagiarizing.
  •   It tells your readers about the sources that were used to produce your paper.
