Abour Citations

About Citations

Citing a source means that you show, within the body of your text, that you took words, ideas, figures, images, etc. from another place.

Why citing is important

Why Citing Is Important


It's important to cite sources you used in your research for several reasons:

  • To show your reader you've done proper research by listing sources you used to get your information.
  • To be a responsible student by giving credit to other researchers and acknowledging their ideas.
  • To avoid plagiarism by quoting words and ideas used by other authors.
  • To allow your reader to track down the sources you used by citing them accurately in your paper by way of footnotes, a bibliography or reference list.
