Why is it important to cite sources?

* To show your reader you've done proper research by listing sources you used to get your information

* To be a responsible scholar by giving credit to other researchers and acknowledging their ideas

* To avoid plagiarism by quoting words and ideas used by other authors

* To allow your reader to track down the sources you used by citing them accurately in your paper by way of footnotes, a bibliography or reference list
