Citing Your Sources

Citing your sources is an important part of the writing process. Documenting your sources gives credit to authors whose thoughts and ideas you have incorporated into your work. By citing your work, you will strengthen your position and show the depth of your research. Most importantly, proper citation will help you avoid plagiarism.
