South China Sea: Writing and Citing

When to Cite


According to the Manual for Writers, a writer must cite the following:

  • exact quotes from a source
  • ​paraphrased ideas associated with a specific source
  • any idea, data, or method attributable to any source consulted (Turabian 2007, 2013, 136).  

For further understanding of citing sources, consult Yale University’s Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning

To better understand how to apply the concept of common knowledge to your practices of academic integrity, see the Poorvu Center’s thorough explanation.
