Purpose of Citations

Citations are a way of giving credit to others for their ideas and work. When we write a paper, give a presentation, or record video for school or in life, we are stepping into ongoing conversations and research. Citations demonstrate that we have done our research and they give credit to those whose ideas and words we are building on.
