1 00:00:00,244 --> 00:00:02,163 In this video, I wanna clarify distinctions 2 00:00:02,163 --> 00:00:04,975 that students sometimes forget to draw when they cite sources. 3 00:00:05,815 --> 00:00:07,042 It's the distinction between 4 00:00:07,042 --> 00:00:10,273 using someone else's words and using someone else's ideas. 5 00:00:10,913 --> 00:00:13,353 You need to cite both, but you cite them differently. 6 00:00:13,913 --> 00:00:17,475 Our first question is, are you using someone else's words? 7 00:00:17,995 --> 00:00:21,252 If the answer's "yes," then you need to quote and cite the source. 8 00:00:22,252 --> 00:00:27,196 If the answer's "no," you still have to ask whether you're using someone else's ideas. 9 00:00:27,636 --> 00:00:30,585 Sometimes, students think that if you're not using a direct quotation, 10 00:00:30,585 --> 00:00:31,784 then you don't have to cite the source. 11 00:00:31,784 --> 00:00:32,745 But you do. 12 00:00:33,065 --> 00:00:35,985 Now if the answer to this is "no," then you don't have to cite anything. 13 00:00:36,585 --> 00:00:38,725 But if it's "yes," then you cite the source. 14 00:00:39,625 --> 00:00:40,985 This might seem obvious, 15 00:00:40,985 --> 00:00:43,866 but I just want to reinforce the point that when you're citing sources, 16 00:00:43,866 --> 00:00:47,246 you have to pay attention both to the language you've borrowed, 17 00:00:47,246 --> 00:00:49,156 and the ideas that you've borrowed. 18 00:00:49,796 --> 00:00:54,016 If you're borrowing language, you need to quote the language and cite the source. 19 00:00:54,016 --> 00:00:57,346 If you're just borrowing an idea, you won't be quoting anything, 20 00:00:57,346 --> 00:00:59,697 but you still need to cite the source of that idea.
