Why it's important to cite your sources?

Citation of sources lays out the scope of the research, strengthens its reliability and validates it.

Citing the sources allows:

  • Giving credit to the original authors and avoiding plagiarism.
  • Locating the complete information on which the work is based. 

There are several citation styles according to the different disciplines:

APA Social Sciences

MLA - Humanities

  • MLA  -  Guide by Library of Congress

Citing Images  

Plagiarism is the act of using someone else's work, ideas, or intellectual property (such as text, images, ideas or other creative expressions) without proper attribution or permission and presenting it as one's own. This can include copying and pasting from a source, paraphrasing without proper citation, submitting someone else's work as your own, or not giving credit to the original author or creator.

Plagiarism is considered a serious ethical violation in academic and professional settings. It undermines the principles of honesty, integrity, and intellectual property rights.  

To avoid plagiarism, it's important to always give proper credit to the original sources by citing them appropriately. This applies to both written and non-written works, such as images, videos, and other creative content.
