Whether you're working on your first research paper or you're an experienced student with an unusual source to cite, citing your sources can be challenging. Never fear! This guide refers you to websites and print books that will help you figure out how to cite your sources in several different styles.
Why do I have to cite my sources?
- You should cite your sources because otherwise you would be taking credit for ideas that were not your own, otherwise known as plagiarizing. You are stealing someone else's intellectual property. (from SUNY Delhi Libraries website)
- Writing your paper in a standard format helps your reader understand you more easily (and it really helps your professors, especially since they read hundreds of papers a year!)
