By citing sources, you are giving credit to the authors of the works you are using. Failure to properly cite your sources constitutes plagiarism and is a violation of moral and professional ethics.
Purdue University offers the best information about citing sources. This information can be found at the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL).
Cedarville University offers another great resource for citing print and electronic sources in APA format.
On page 28 of the PMU’s Student Handbook
, under the Code of Student Conduct section, in regards to Academic Honesty and Integrity
, students are able to read PMU’s Statement of Principle. The Statement of Principle maintains that “PMU expects all students to engage in all academic pursuits in a manner that is above reproach and to maintain complete academic honesty and integrity in their academic experiences both in and out of the classroom. The university may initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of any form of academic dishonesty, including but not limited to cheating on an examination or other academic work, plagiarism, collusion, and/or the abuse of resource materials.”
