For your research papers, you will need to include a bibliography of your sources. Citing your sources:
Lets your audience know that sources you are using are credible and based on established research, that you didn't just make it up.
Following a specific format such as APA style allows your reader to find information quickly in your paper.
It helps your audience know how to retrace your steps or recreate your work.
And it demonstrates your knowledge of your topic.
