Why Cite?

Citations are an important aspect of every research paper: 

  • Credit must be given to the original author or creator of a source or it could be considered plagiarism
  • Anyone reading your paper must have the correct information to locate the sources you referenced
  • Using and citing a variety of sources in your paper adds to the credibility of your research by showing that the ideas included are shared or supported by others
