Why is citing important?

There are several reasons why it is important to cite your sources:

  • Providing citations gives the proper credit to the person or group who spent the time researching and writing a secondary source work that provided you with information.
  • Citing allows your reader to find the source later if she wants to read it herself.
  • Citing experts provides credibility to the argument of your paper.
  • This indicates that you did a thorough job researching your topic.
