Answer:

There are several helpful resources to check your citations for accuracy and ease of use. College and university writing centers are an excellent place to visit to seek citation help. In addition, Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (Purdue Owl), provides free style guides for MLA, APA, and Chicago citation styles. Purdue Owl provides examples of nearly every kind of citation situation. You can access Purdue Owl here: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/purdue_owl.html. Finally, the majority of online databases provide citation features that you can access when you select an article. Be sure to check any citation generated from a database for accuracy before you turn in your paper or essay.

Answer:

Students can access several open educational resources to gain information for their projects and research. For instance, students can utilize excellent resources from the federal government via www.govinfo.gov. Students focusing on scientific or medical research can access some, though not all research for free via PubMed. Finally, students can infuse their research with helpful statistics by using a free government resource from www.usa.gov/statistics.

Answer:

Students should strive to include several types of properly cited sources of information in their essays or papers. Sources should include academic and peer reviewed articles, and can include popular sources such as magazine or newspaper articles. Depending on a research or essay topic, students may also want to include interviews, blog posts, or reputable website sources. Students need to reflect upon the quality and reliability of the sources they choose, as well as properly attribute and cite their sources.
