You must always carefully cite the sources you are using in your papers, essays and theses. That is why it is of most importance that you note down precisely which sources you are using, right from the start of your research. Note down the exact title description and page number of the source you are using. You must also indicate when you are using a particular passage literally (citation) and when you are rephrasing a passage in your own words (paraphrasing). You can manage your literature in various ways:
- Make a list of all publications you have used for your paper, essay or thesis in a Word document or a Google Docs document
- Save physical sources, such as print-outs of journal articles
- Use special software to save references to the literature, such as Mendeley, Endnote or Zotero
