What needs to be cited?

  • Direct quotes.
  • Paraphrased ideas that you found in a source (book, articles, blogs, etc.)
  • Not commonly known facts.
  • Data that you are using that came from doing research on your project.

Every time you refer to a resource in the text you must provide an in-text citation or a footnote/endnote depending on your citation style. If you use an article more than once there should be multiple citations in the text.

Citation Style Guides

See our guides with helpful tips and examples for popular citation styles such as APA, MLA, Turabian, Chicago Style, and more.*

There are many different "styles" you may choose from when citing sources. Your professor will probably tell you which "style" is preferred for your class. MLA (Modern Language Association), Chicago, and APA (American Psychological Association) are three of the most commonly used citation styles, but there are hundreds.

The entire Chicago Manual of Style is now also available in GALILEO (access restricted to UGA affiliates).
