How to Quote and Cite Quoting and Citing all your sources is extremely important. If you fail to quote or cite your  resources you have committed plagiarism.  Direct quotes: Direct quotes are when you copy, word for word from you source. First time you cite an author: “………………. .” (last name of author, date of publication, page(s)#. “The banking and finance industry has also engaged in discriminatory practices” (Nguyen, 2005,  XXI). Second time you cite an author: “………………. .” (last name of author, page(s)#. “Chris Simcox wanted to get away from city life in Los Angeles” (Nguyen, 91). Paraphrase: A paraphrase is a re-statement of someone else’s idea, but in your own word.  It does not need quotation marks. There are two ways to do this: 1. Paraphrase with author in sentence For example: According to Tram Nguyen (2005) all immigrants are now automatically suspects of  terrorism (1).
