Why do We Cite?

1. It allows other who are reading your work to find the information sources that you used.
2. Citing peer-reviewed and highly regarded work in the literature gives your work more credibility.
3. Helps you to avoid plagiarism. It is very important that any quotation, opinion, or idea that is not your own be attributed to their original source.
