Citing sources

Always check with your professor to see if there is a required style for your paper. In general, researchers in theatre and drama use the citation style in the Modern Language Association (MLA) Style Guide or the Notes-Bibliography version of the Chicago Manual of Style

Why cite? It's important to cite your sources, for a variety of reasons:

  • To give credit to the author(s) of your sources
  • To allow your readers to locate your sources
  • To show that you thoroughly researched your topic and can support your claims
  • So you don't get in trouble for plagiarizing
