Proper Research

The steps to do a proper search.

Credibility

You can figure out if a website is credible if it includes the authors name. If the URL has .edu, .org, and possibly .gov. Some ways that you can tell if a website is not credible is if it has adds or spongers. You will also want to look at the URL again and if it says .com then it could possibly be credibly, but you can trust the other one a whole lot more. You also absolutely don't want to use blogs or websites with lots of spelling errors for research because you might be getting the incorrect information.

Citing Your Research

You always have to site what you have found in you research because if you use their facts and there idea then that is plagiarizing. This information is very specific and includes the author(s), date of publication, title, and source.

Plagiarizing

Plagiarizing is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as your own. If you plagiarize something then you could be charged for it. It could be an academic, professional, student, journalist, author, and others that could plagiarize.

You can avoid it by citing you sources . Giving the name of the author and the website or page that you got it on.

MLA Citing

MLA citing is where it supports you with all of the information that you need so you do not plagiarize. Example on Issac Newton: Sullivan, Anne Marie, and Mauro Evangelista. "Issac Newton." Isaac Newton (2003): 2. Book Collection Nonfiction: Middle School Edition. Web. 16 Oct. 2015.

Work cited pages is wear you go into a credible source and some wear on the page you will find a button that says cite then you go into it and find MLA.
