4. Keep Track of Your Sources
Make sure you give credit where credit is due. Sources are cited for three reasons. One is to give credit to the author's ideas or words you used, and the other is to allow the reader to check where you obtained your information from so they can check your research and follow up on the sources you used.
Keeping track of your sources will help you avoid plagiarism, help you find where you obtained your information from, and help you create your bibliography for your research project.
Citation Machine is a helpful tool for creating bibliographies. The MLA format is used at BHS.
