Why We Cite?

UNC Writing Center gives a brief description of citations and why they are necessary.

Avoid Plagiarism

Books on shelf

If you don't cite your sources properly, you are plagiarizing and that's bad news; not to mention a violation of the Academic Integrity Code outlined in your Student Handbook.  

"Plagiarism is intentionally or knowingly presenting the work of another as one’s own (i.e., without proper acknowledgment of the source). The sole exception to the requirement of acknowledging sources is when the ideas, information, etc., are common knowledge."

Some examples of plagiarism include:

  • Buying a paper online
  • Passing someone else's paper off as your own
  • Copying all or part of any previous work without proper acknowledgement (citations)
