To present someone else's information or ideas as your own is plagiarism. When doing research, it is very important to acknowledge and give proper credit to any sources you use, regardless of the medium in which the original is found.
The standard format for citing sources at Seattle Prep is the Modern Language Association (MLA) format. Students are encouraged to refer to their Writers Inc. handbook for further examples and information, or to consult The Write Source for updates.
Remember the following guidelines:
- Begin each entry flush with the left margin; indent additional lines five spaces.
- Double-space between all lines on the Works-Cited page.
- Single-space after each period in the Works-Cited entry.
