Why you should cite and use references
- Academic writing builds to a large extent on previous research conducted within a subject area, and your reasoning and conclusions are usually based on these prior sources.
- If you draw on the ideas and thoughts of another without clearly showing from where they were taken, it is an act of plagiarism, which is strictly prohibited.
- Academic integrity - i.e. you must give credit where it is due to other authors' work..
- Those who read your text might be interested in learning more about the subject at hand and should be able to easily turn to the sources you have used
