Citing Your Work

When you write a research paper or report you need to include a bibliography or a list of the books, articles, or other publications that you used in your research.The pieces of information used to describe a specific publication are grouped together to make up a citation or a bibliographic citation.

Why you need to cite your sources:

  • Let your readers know that what you write is based on established research, that you didn't just make it up.
  • Help readers who want to retrace your steps or recreate your work.
  • Demonstrate your knowledge of the field and your familiarity with the professional literature.
