Why Cite?

  • To give credibility to authors and sources whom you have quoted, paraphrased, summarized, and/or interpreted
  • It gives readers access to the sources you used in your work -- this helps build your credibility!
  • Citing helps avoid pesky plagiarism (see the "Plagiarism" section on this page).
  • To provide reputable authority, evidence, research, and/or information for your research, paper, or assignment.
