Citing Sources

The most commonly used documentation styles for citing sources are APA (American Psychological Association), MLA (Modern Language Association), and the Chicago Style. Your professor will indicate which one you are to use for your assignments. Documenting the work of others is critical to the scholarly process and essential to avoid plagiarism. Read about the consequences of plagiarism in the Statement of Academic Integrity listed in the Academic Programs section of the Dominican University Portal (login required).
