Know the source of your information - for 2 reasons:
1. To see if the source is trustworthy and appropriate - especially critical for a controversial subject.
2. To cite the source - If using someone else's words or ideas, you must give credit.
Include enough information in your citation so another person can find it. There are many standard formats (APA, MLA, Chicago, e.g.). Ask your professor which one to use.
