Why Cite?

Why Cite?

You cite sources in your research projects for several reasons:

  • To show your readers you've done proper research by listing the sources you used to get your information;
  • To give credit to other researchers and acknowledging their ideas;
  • To avoid plagiarism by indicating which words and ideas you used are the work of other authors;
  • To allow our readers to locate the sources you used by providing in-text citations, footnotes, bibliographies or reference lists.
