Citation Station: Overview

Why do I have to cite?

Academic Research

is about creating new knowledge from established information.

Citations

allow the reader to see what established information was used to create new knowledge.

In other words...

  • If I am building a house, I need material to build that house.

  • If I cannot explain how I built the house by citing the material I used, how can the house be trusted?
