8 One Last Thing Write your title page on a new, blank document Why? We need to suppress the header on the first page of a multi-page report. If your title page is the first page of your report, your header will still appear on page 1

9 How to Cite Others Using the Turabian Style

10 Would You Take Candy from a Baby? Use other people’s work to prove your point Copying is like taking candy from a baby, but… Copying without referencing the source is plagiarism, which is illegal We have to reference our sources Writing that is backed up by other sources has more credibility

11 Academic standards for copyrighted material are higher than others. Because scholars and researchers study so many different ideas and are responsible for sharing those ideas with the world, they are required to satisfy higher standards of honesty. They must give credit not only when quoting someone else's exact words but also for the ideas those words represent. As a researcher, you cannot paraphrase what someone else says and not give credit for it.

12 Referencing Styles We reference works using the Turabian style Turabian style says that we must use a bibliography with footnotes/endnotes

13 Referencing Styles There are many different style guides published as books for writers to use such as Chicago, APA, MLA… They are all somewhat similar The style to use depends on which your teacher asks you to use
