Can I publish something that references other content?

    I have a couple really great papers that I wrote for school that have references to a United States Constitution text book. I'd love to be able to post them with properly cited references to the source I used but I'm wondering if hubpages would consider this original work. The case that I am thinking of mostly has my interpretation of the subject although I did use a few references in the paper. Is it appropriate to publish it to hubpages with references listed?

    If you wrote the papers then there is no problem.  Cite your references if you are quoting from the book.

    I published one of my research papers on Video Gaming Addiction. I cited sources at the end of my hub, just like I did at the end of my paper. In fact, I've posted around 8 assignments on here (after I handed them in of course). It's original content that I wrote, so there is no problem with that. I own it. It appears no where else and I properly credited my sources.

    Now more people can read my work then just my professor, I think that's pretty cool! big_smile

    I don't believe I used any direct quotes in that paper, so nothing appeared as duplicate content.

    Thank you for the information. Just to see if I understand one of the comments made that if you directly quote something even with proper citation it will be viewed as duplicate information?
