ABOUT CITING

Why do we cite our sources in research papers?

  • Give credit where it's due and avoid plagiarism
  • Contribute to a scholarly conversation
  • Help others understand our work by tracing the origins of our ideas and research
  • Help others continue research in the area that our paper is focused
