First and foremost, three crucial things on citations at NPS:
1. Yes, plagiarism is real. Yes, you may be subject to Honor Board review and other very serious consequences if plagiarism is found in your thesis. With that said, too many students, because of that, fear using sources or, even worse, fear writing their own thoughts. We have an absolute ton of resources on citations for you; all you have to do is approach research professionally and ask for help as needed.
2. The NPS library, in conjunction with the GWC, has put together an AMAZING, SUPER HELPFUL, citation website that is specifically tailored for you.
