We use MLA at UWC CSC to demonstrate ethical use of information by citing our sources. Read below for more details.
1. Differentiating between your words and ideas and those of others demonstrates that you are an ethical user of information....It also makes you look smarter and is very helpful to your reader.
2. UWC CSC requires it.
3. IBO requires it.
4. All universities require it.
Only cite ideas
Facts and anything considered "Common knowledge" do not have to be cited.
Every borrowed idea has two citations
The works cited reference and the in-text citation
Tables do not need to be referenced in the works cited IF the complete reference information is provided with the table within the text.
When using ideas and information written in a language other than that of the assignment please do the following:
Create a reference in the original language, AND
Write a brief summary in the language of submission (usually English) including a) title, b) author's name, c) focus of the work, and d) any other relevant details the reader should know.
