Research is, in effect, building on the ideas of others. It helps you grow as a researcher to acknowledge what other researchers have contributed. By learning from others, you can be more informed, and it fosters academic collegiality where you get to be part of the conversation. Citing the sources that you use is an important part of academia and being a professional in your field.

If you need help writing or formatting your paper, we recommend visiting the Writing Center on the 3rd floor of the library.
