Documentation

Introduction


Most academic writing projects require you to gather, evaluate, and use the work of others.

When you draw upon the work of others, you must give proper credit. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism.

If you learn a few basic rules, you can quickly format your researched papers in accordance with the style required for your course.
