Why Use Citations?

Citations are important for several reasons:

  • They are audience-friendly. If your reader wants to know more about the information you included, a citation tells them where to go to find out more.
  • They hold us accountable as researchers and writers. Providing citations encourages us to accurately quote, paraphrase, and reference our sources.
  • They connect our work to a larger community of thinkers. By citing other sources, our arguments become stronger as they build upon previous work instead of standing alone.

Citation Software

For large projects such as a dissertation, we recommend using a citation manager like Zotero.
