Writing & Citation Tools

"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 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."
