Many students consider that there are no instructions for citing a source and they do not bother to be more attentive. However, should the research or essay have some scientific character it is absolutely necessary to provide all indications. Otherwise students may fall into plagiarism which leads to a serious academic misconduct. ­

If you are working on one of your papers related to your studies in a high school, college or university you cannot neglect this issue as it is crucial for an academic success.

Before we explain how to cite a source correctly, you should know the exact meaning of this term. Generally sources are divided into two main groups: primary and secondary sources . Each of them has its own specific features that also apply to those which were created online. Primary Sources

Primary sources consist of texts or other materials that were originally created by people who took part in the events described. These may be original letters of important historical figures, speeches, diaries etc., records made by scientists during their field research or journalists covering an event, audio-video recordings as well as photographs and films. In order to cite your source properly it is necessary to realize exactly what kind of a primary source it is. At best case scenario if you study history or literature at school or college you will come across a source in the form of a document, which was issued word for word. In most cases this is not the case so it may be challenging to cite correctly a website or newspaper article from an archive online. If you are writing about an event that took place after 1950s, you should know how to deal with primary sources and their acknowledgement when writing your paper. It is recommended to keep all memos related to your work such as articles or reports during research and then use them.
