Why Cite

We cite sources to acknowledge the work of others, as well as to avoid academic dishonesty or plagiarism.

The University of Toronto  has made available a comprehensive set of guidelines on How NOT to Plagiarize which deserves to be read by every student.

Citation Styles in the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program

At Laurentian, professors will specify the citation style to be used.  To learn more about citation styles, consult Laurentian's guide to citation styles.
