What is Citation?


In academic research we read works by other people and collect information to act as a foundation for our own work. When we use this information we give credit to the original author. This process is called citation.

Why do we cite?

Citation allows people reading your work to find the original sources if they want to learn more about something.
Citation gives people credit for the work they did - you're not taking credit for someone else's work.
When you cite other people's work it shows that you have done your research and that your arguments are based on a strong foundation.
If you don't cite properly, you are committing plagiarism. and risk academic or even legal repercussions
