Be aware when using any cite feature or citation feature in a database or online source to double check it for accuracy. It is important to have a working knowledge of the citation style (APA, MLA, Chicago) in order to recognize glitches or mistakes that may occur when copying and pasting information or exporting information into a citation manager.
Rule number one: As the author of your work, article, presentation, or research assignment, it is your responsibility to ensure all citations on the Reference or Works Cited page are correct. This also applies to your in text citations.
Rule number two: Check or review your work, references, quotes, paraphrasing, summarizing, citations, and format to make certain it is following the citation style requirements assigned by the professor or instructor.
