Why Citations Matter

There are lots of reasons why it's important to cite your sources. These include:


1. Gives credit to the person whose work you have used

2. Allows others to go find the source you used

3. Points to the evidence you used for the claim or argument you are making

4. Helps you avoid plagiarism 



This guide is based on the work of Amanda DeArmond and Lisa Crumit-Hancock at Defiance College.
