Citations and bibliography

Citations and Bibliography

You cite articles so that others can find the sources of your information in the bibliography, and then find the book and page from which the information was taken. This enables others to do their research efficiently, and also to check the quality of your work.

If you don’t cite your sources, people may think that you’re making up information or taking it from poor sources.

They also may think that you’ve stolen your information. This is called plagiarism.
