[Extract] Honest and professional citation of references provides part of the framework for sound written research. Whenever you draw upon previously published work, you must acknowledge the source. Any information not from your experiment and not "common knowledge" should be recognized by a citation. How citations are presented varies considerably from discipline to discipline and you should refer to 'instructions to authors' for the specific journal. Quotes that appear in the article, if long, should have their own indented paragraph, otherwise if they are in the natural flow of the article should be within speech marks, and in both cases they should include a reference. Avoid references that are difficult to find, and/or refer to papers not written in the language of the journal to which you are submitting your paper. The References section that appears at the end of the paper includes all references cited in your paper. This is in contrast to a bibliography, common in books, where works read but not necessarily cited in the text are listed. The order in which references are presented also varies from journal to journal and you should consult the journal's 'instructions to authors'.
