IN-TEXT CITATION: WITHIN YOUR PAPER
As you write, you will create citations in the text of your paper, to let the reader know when you are using someone else's thoughts.
Some styles use footnotes, other styles use endnotes or parenthetical citations (see citation styles).
BIBLIOGRAPHY/SOURCES CITED: AT THE END
At the end of your paper, you'll provide a complete list of all of the sources you used to write it.
Include everything you used, whether you specifically quoted or cited it in the text of your paper or not.
Depending on the citation style you're using, this may be called "Bibliography," "Works Cited," or "References."
WHAT IS A CITATION?
A citation provides the reader with information about your sources, to help the reader find them. Citations usually include such elements as:
