Why Cite?

The primary reasons for citing sources when presenting research are:

  • to give credit to the authors whose work you have drawn upon, and  
  • to allow readers to track down your sources, should they wish to do so. 

There are many style guides for formatting citations and creating bibliographies. The major styles are

  • MLA Style, from the Modern Language Association;
  • APA Style, from the American Psychological Association, and 
  • Chicago Style, from the University of Chicago Press
