Why is citing important?

There are several reasons why it is important to cite

  • It is important to give the proper credit to the person or group who spent the time researching and writing in order to provide that information.
  • This allows your instructor (and maybe one day the reader of your article?!) to find the source later if she wants to read it herself.
  • Citing experts gives credibility to the argument of your paper.
  • Indicates that you did a thorough job researching your topic.
