WHY WE CITE
Citations are an important part of the scholarly conversation. They...
- demonstrate the research path someone took to develop an idea
- help to relate that idea to readers.
Citations also offer leads for researchers to follow to other pertinent information sources.
WHEN TO CITE
- When you directly quote someone else
- When you reference another person's ideas
- When you outline someone else's argument or line of reasoning
