Cite Sources / Avoid Plagiarism
You'll be required to add a References page at the end of your research paper. This page is sometimes called a Works Cited page or a Bibliography. It lists the resources (books, journal articles, media) from which you've obtained others' thoughts that you have incorporated into your paper. The NYIT School of Education requires that you format your references in APA style. The tools and resources presented here greatly simplify doing so.
These Web-based tools offer fill-in-the-blank solutions for correct References page formatting: i.e., fill in blanks with author name, book or article title, date of publication, etc.; then click a Submit button and see your citation generated in correct APA style. Caution: These tools offer formatting style options (MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, etc.). Be sure to select APA, the style required by the NYIT School of Education.
