Why do I need to cite?

  • It shows the reader you have done the proper research by showing the sources of the information. 
  • It allows the reader to know where you found the information you are listing in your paper. 
  • Citing sources gives attribution to other's ideas and makes you a responsible scholar. 
  • To prevent plagiarism.
  • Citing a source shows the reader that you took words, ideas, images, videos, and another type of content from somewhere else.

What should I cite? 

Ok, so let's say you are sifting through dozens of images and need only one view of a precedent for the final presentation, Unless you captured or drew the image yourself, The answer is always, yes. Cite everything.
