When should you reference?
Whenever you use an idea from someone else’s work, for example from a journal article, textbook or website, you should cite the original author to make it clear where that idea came from. This is the case regardless of whether you have paraphrased, summarised or directly quoted their work.
Can you use the same reference twice?
Consecutive references: When you are referencing the same source in two (or more) footnotes the second and subsequent references should be entered as “Ibid.” and the page number for the relevant footnote. Use “Ibid.” without any page number if the page is the same as the previous reference.
How many times should I cite the required readings?
Can you cite too much?
Do not worry about using referencing too often. As a general rule, it is better to use the references too often than not enough. You may have been given some advice not to use too many references. This advice means you don’t need to have a long list of authors that you didn’t read properly.
Can you over cite?
Avoid both undercitation and overcitation. Undercitation can lead to plagiarism and/or self-plagiarism. Overcitation can be distracting and is unnecessary. For example, it is considered overcitation to repeat the same citation in every sentence when the source and topic have not changed.
How many citations are too many?
The longer the assignment, the greater the number of references required. As a general rule, there should be between 8 – 12 references for every 1,000 words.
How often should you cite?
Many students think it’s acceptable to cite a source once at the end of a paragraph, but to make clear where your information came from, you need to cite much more often than that. You need to cite every time you’ve used words, ideas, or images from a source.
What to do if a whole paragraph is from one source?
If your entire paragraph is paraphrase of info you got from one of your sources, just put the citation at the very end, like you said. You don’t have to mention the author or do an in-text citation for every sentence.
