Citing Your Sources

What is a Citation?

A citation is a reference to the source of an idea or piece of information. Your citation should allow anyone who sees your reference list to be able to find the original source. Typically, citations include information such as author, title, date, website, etc.

Why Cite?

  • To show where you found your information
  • To give credit to the author or creator whose ideas you are using
  • To add credibility and support to your own argument
  • To respect copyright
