BIOL 348: Developmental Biology: Cite & Write

APA Style

Why Cite?*

To Become a More Mature Thinker  |  To Recreate a Sense of Lively Debate  |  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.
