MTH 630 - Applied Statistics: Citations

Mr. Jacob

When to Use Citations

You must use citations when:

  • You use a direct quote from a resource.
  • You paraphrase a sentence or paragraph from a source.
  • You use an IDEA from a source that is not common knowledge.

WHEN IN DOUBT, CITE IT!

Citation Forms

The American Statistical Association's citation format is generally used for statistics research papers.  This style is similar to others you may be familiar with but includes precise instructions on how to visualize data, format charts and grafts, and format your bibliography. The style help sheet is located at:
