Your Guide to a Successful Speech!

Cite it Right

When presenting information in any format, it's important to provide a list of citations in some sort of style in order to avoid plagiarism. This style may be MLA, APA or even Chicago. Ultimately, no matter what style you use, you need to be able to create citations that allow others to find the information you used. Citations, no matter the style, contain valuable information like the name of the publication (a book, article or even internet pages), page numbers, the author, and more.
