It is very important to cite sources correctly in scientific and academic work. Indeed, compliance with the formal requirements and rules of citation is key to the success of a term paper or dissertation. A module on correct citation (“Zitieren statt plagiieren”) is available in the ULB-Kompass (German only).
It offers explanations and independent learning materials on the following questions:
- Why is correct citation necessary?
- How can you recognise and avoid plagiarism?
- What are the basic rules of correct citation and how can you apply them to your own texts?
