Purpose of Citations

Citations are a way of giving credit to others for their ideas and work. In school, in jobs and in our personal lives, when we write an essay, give a presentation, make a speech, or record a video, we are often stepping into ongoing conversations and previous research around a topic. In the scholarly tradition of the United States, citations demonstrate that we have done our research and they give credit to those whose ideas and words we are building on.
