Citation Guide

Most academic writing cites others' ideas and research. Ask your instructor which citation style (APA or MLA) to use for your speeches.

How citing sources benefits you:

  • Sources that support your ideas give your paper authority and credibility
  • Shows you have researched your topic thoroughly
  • Crediting sources protects you from plagiarism
  • A list of sources can be a useful record for further research
