Citing your sources gives you credibility as a researcher and helps you give credit where credit is due.

  1. By citing your sources, you acknowledge the scholars who came before you and helped you along the way.
  2. Citing also helps anyone reading your paper evaluate your writing for credibility. In the same way that you might evaluate a resource you find on the internet, your readers will evaluate your writing using your citations.
