Public Service Announcement:

When citing a source and quoting it word for word, please use quotation marks to indicate that the text is not of your own creation but instead has been pulled from the source you are citing. Beside being standard practice throughout the English language, this helps maintain clarity and avoid accusations of plagiarism.

Example:

One useful tool in citing sources are quotation marks: "punctuation marks surrounding a quotation, direct speech, or a literal title or name." [1]

This has been a Public Service Announcement.
