The resources below discuss plagiarism and academic dishonesty
What is a citation?
A citation is a piece of information that identifies and directs readers to a specific academic work. Citations follow academic standards that serve to organize scholarly work and provide credit to scholars for their intellectual work. Citations are used to credit other scholars, locate further resources, and strengthen scholarly work by providing evidence to support academic writing.
What is a citation style?
Citation styles are guidelines for academic writing that provide the format necessary for creating citations in academic writing. Typically, the citation style needed for your work will be decided by the discipline in which you are writing.
Of course, accurately citing sources is important for avoiding plagiarism and academic dishonesty, but citing sources serves other purposes as well.
