Check out How to Cite a Quote

PROOFREAD your final publish before submission. Writing a research paper is a formal academic exercise; presentation and appearance form an integral part of the final product. Neatness counts.
While I am easy-going on grammar usage (etc), if I have a lot of trouble trying to make sense of your work, I will dock points!
Remember: The opinions and conclusions of your paper are presumed to be yours unless they are properly cited (if they are not yours and not cited, it IS plagiarism, intended or not).
Use citations and quotation marks appropriately! When in doubt, cite it (better safe than sorry).
