Why Cite?

Citing your sources may seem tedious, but it's important to cite because:

  • Citations allow others to find the information you used in your research paper.

  • They help establish the credibility of your research.

  • They acknowledge the work of other scholars who have made your own research possible.

  • And last but certainly not least, they help you avoid plagiarizing!
