Mini-course (Bio)Chemistry for Graduate Students

Created for Dr. Darren Hansen's graduate students - Fall 2011

TIP

As you gather your sources, compile your References section. Complete this section before you begin writing your paper! Why?

  • This will ensure that you have copied down all the necessary citation components of your book, article, Web site, etc.
  • It will make your life much easier when you need to do in-text citations since authors and dates are already neatly organized on your reference page.
  • It decreases the chance that you'll include an in-text citation for a source, but then forget to include it within the reference section.

Reminder

Remember to cite when:

  • quoting
  • paraphrasing
  • summarizing
  • borrowing an image

You do NOT have to cite when it is:

  • common knowledge
  • original thought
