Information Ethics

It is important to appropriately cite sources and use information in an ethical way. The links listed here can help you understand this concept. If you have questions, consult a librarian or your professor.

Getting Started with Citations

Citation can be complicated because we now access information in so many different formats.

If you don't know how to cite an information source, gather as much information as you can about it, and ask a librarian to help you. The Academic Success Center at Clermont College (Peters-Jones 104) can also provide assistance on all aspects of the writing process, including help with citation. UC Libraries also provides a comprehensive guide to citing works in various formats.

EBSCOhost databases, Summon, and many other library databases will actually provide citations for you. Users can usually select their preferred citation style when saving, printing, or emailing an article. However, caution should be exercised because there can be errors in the auto generation!

There are also a number of citation managers that can help you organize and form your citations:

APA Style Help

MLA Style Help

Chicago/Turabian Style Help

ACS Style Help

CSE Style Help

AMA Style Help

IEEE & ASME Style Help
