Why cite?*

✔  To Become a More Mature Thinker

✔  To Recreate a Sense of Lively Debate and to Establish Intellectual Context

✔  To Give Credit Where It’s Due

✔  To Lead Us to Further Research

When you cite a source, you show how your voice enters into an intellectual conversation and you demonstrate your link to the community within which you work. Working with sources can inspire your own ideas and enrich them, and your citation of these sources is the visible trace of that debt.

How do I cite...

Citation Generators

Citation generators can be great time-savers, but their accuracy is only as good as the information you enter and they'll still make mistakes.

For best results, identify the type of source you're citing, accept that most generators only cite commonly used sources (e.g. books), and double-check every generated citation.
