This version of How to Cite Shakespeare was reviewed by Michelle Golden on March 31, 2017.
These materials will help you avoid plagiarism by teaching you how to properly integrate information from published sources into your own writing.
Your Works Cited page is a listing of every source you used and cited within your paper. Note, just because you read it in your research does not mean it should be included on your Works Cited page. ONLY sources directly referenced in your paper can be included.
For example, a properly-formatted long quotation in a document might look like this:
Outside of football, Irsay has made notable investments in music and memorabilia. In 2001 Irsay purchased the original manuscript of On the Road , or "the scroll": a continuous, one hundred twenty-foot scroll of tracing paper sheets that Jack Kerouac cut to size and taped together, for $ million. Irsay is a big fan of British rock band The Who . Irsay also has purchased guitars originally owned by Elvis Presley ,  George Harrison , John Lennon , Paul McCartney , Bob Dylan , Jerry Garcia  and Prince  as well as a Ludwig drum set belonging to Ringo Starr .

15. A contract for sale or purchase of securities (other than shares) for amount exceeding Rs 1 lakh per transaction.
Here is an example of what would be considered plagiarism
of this passage:
Men in the Mid East have used hookahs to puff smoke for centuries.
The "hookah" has been resurrected today in coffeehouses, restaurants and
bars "supplanting the cigar as the tobacco fad of the moment."
Reason why Example #1 is plagiarism :
Notice the writer of this passage liberally borrows words, phrases and parts of sentences from the Berestein passage (even quoting parts) but gives no indication of where the information came from. Even if the Berestein book is cited at the end of the paper in the bibliography, there is no indication that this particular passage came from the book. This information has been stolen or plagiarized from Berestein.
Here are some examples of what would be considered acceptable quotations from this passage: Example #2 According to Leslie Berestein (2003), the Middle Eastern water pipe known as the hookah recently "has been resurrected in youth-oriented coffeehouses, restaurants and bars, supplanting the cigar as the tobacco fad of the moment" (p. 10). Reason why Example #2 is acceptable :
The writer uses American Psychological Association (APA) style to cite the author Berestein by introducing the quotation with the phrase "According to Berestein" . The (10) at the end of the quoted passage indicates the page number from which the quote was taken in the Berestein book. A reference list at the end of your paper would list the complete citation for the Berestein book. Example #3 The Middle Eastern water pipe known as the hookah has recently "been resurrected in youth-oriented coffeehouses, restaurants and bars, supplanting the cigar as the tobacco fad of the moment" (Berestein 10). Reason why Example #3 is acceptable :
In this example, the writer cites the source using the Modern Language Associaton (MLA) style, with the author's name and page number cited at the end of the quote. Example #4 The Middle Eastern water pipe known as the hookah recently "has been resurrected in youth-oriented coffeehouses, restaurants and bars, supplanting the cigar as the tobacco fad of the moment." 1 Reason why Example #4 is acceptable :
Here, the writer uses Turabian style to reference the author, by marking the cited source with a footnote/endnote number. A footnote or endnote will appear later in the paper (either at the bottom of the page or the end of the paper) containing the complete citation for the author, including the page number. Notice that in each of these examples, the writer quotes Berestein's words exactly as it was given within the sentence. Whenever you quote someone else's words, you have to write them exactly as they originally appear.
