Although there are no hard rules to deducing a source’s value, the following are some good rules to keep in mind: A good source usually has an author. A good source is unbiased. When using the internet, remember that the better sites will likely end in “.edu” or “.gov”. A good source has been published/peer reviewed. A good source is either of a time period (historical) or up to date (contemporary). A good source does not push an agenda.
quoting is when you use the exact words from the source in your text. Quotes should be placed with quotation marks and offset with a proper introduction. Paraphrasing is taking someone’s idea and putting it in your own words. This does not mean simply replacing one or two words (this is plagiarism); proper paraphrasing changes sentence structure, style, and word choice. Instances of both paraphrasing and quoting should be sited!
