Step 7Cite your resources using a standard format
 
Assemble the list of the works that you have cited in your paper. This list should be included at the end of your paper. It is generally called Reference List, Bibliography or Works Cited.
 
Remember to give credit where it is due. Ethics of research require you to cite the source of work, regardless of whether you have paraphrase, summarise or refer to it. Failure to do so will mean you are guilty of plagiarism. Check with your supervisor regarding the preferred style: MLA, APA, Turabian or Chicago citation style. You can also use the format provided by Wawasan Open University, available in the student handbook.
 
Examples of citation guides taken from Duke University Libraries website as as given below:
 
Keeping records
It is important that you record all your steps and thoughts as you proceed to do your library research as you may need to use the information later. Bad record keeping will cause you to make an unscheduled visit to the library or searching the Internet at the 11th hour to trace back the vital missing information that is needed for you to complete your writing. Use any medium that you are comfortable with. This can be just a paper notebook or any electronic devices. Just ensure that it is something portable and convenient to use.
 
Use any note-taking method to write and organize your notes. However, an effective way is the split-page method whereby the first column is used for notes, second column for page numbers and the third column for your comments, questions or ideas. Write the bibliographic information (author, title, publication details, date accessed and URL of website) at the top of the page to clearly indicate where the information was sourced.
