Here are some of the most common citation mistakes that Dr. Sia and Prof. Koford see:
In History and Systems of Psychology, you will be asked to take on the role of an important psychologist. Thinking about plagiarism and citation might get confusing, because you will be quoting and paraphrasing from "yourself." You should still cite your sources in all of your written work.
Your speech will be a collage of primary sources. It will not include your own perspective and opinion, just quotes from your psychologist's writings and transitions between quotes.
Write the later date first - the date of the physical copy you used. In parentheses at the end of the Reference List entry, add a note that says when the original work was published.
Freud, S. (2011). Beyond the pleasure principle. (T. Dufresne, Ed., and G. C. Richter, Trans.) Peterborough, Ont.:
Broadview Editions. (Original work published 1922).
Note: When you cite a republished work, like the one above, in your text, it should appear with both dates: (Laplace, 1814/1951).
