donneWhenever you use sources such as books, journals, articles, news, media or websites in your research papers you must give credit to the original author by properly citing the sources. Citations also help your reader find the sources again. There are a number of different citation styles, depending on the discipline in which you are working.

Plagiarism is copying something without crediting the source.
