How Do I Cite Sources?

  • 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 scholar by giving credit to other authors and researchers 
      • To avoid plagiarism by acknowledging when the words and ideas are not your own.
      • To allow your reader to track down the sources you used by citing them accurately in your paper through your works cited page.
