This includes both proper in-text citations and a works cited page. As a general rule, direct quotations should only be used when using your own words would cause the information to lose its meaning. Direct quotes should also be used with caution in short papers because they indicate that you do not understand the material if used often. When paraphrasing a source it is fine to include just one in-text citation at the end of the paragraph.
