Adding images to your paper: How to use resources

This guide is created to help and guide you on how to search for images, how to use images in your text or paper, and how to cite images



You have an assignment and you need to search and choose information resources, develop a research question, locate resources and evaluate them. Then comes the part that we have to use the information we collected ethically. Many students are confused and have many questions on what information they can use and in what form. You might also need to add images to your paper or study.

To use any information from any resource in any type you need permission to do so or you will be accused of plagiarizing. 

What you need to do:

- Cite your resources

- Ask for permission from the author

- Citation and permission for using photos, images, graphs....etc. as well as words.

- For copyright issues make sure to cite and document ever source you use.
