As a student, your main copyright challenge is to ensure you properly cite all sources you use in your school work!

Copyright in your student work

Why do we need to cite, anyway?

Why should we cite?

You need to cite to ensure...

  • You give credit to the original authors/sources of information and avoid plagiarism
  • Your readers can quickly access your original sources
  • You add credibility to your assignments and help prove your arguments.

Colleges/Universities, subject areas and professions select and use a standard method of citation. Be sure to check with your Professor on what method to use.
