Why cite your sources? And why is it important to do it correctly?
Citing your sources is important, but it is also difficult and time consuming. This website aims to make the process easier for you, by asking you the relevant bits of information for the source type, and then presenting the results to you in whatever format you select.
  • To enable others to find the information themselves
  • To allow you to find the information again yourself
  • To identify the likely reliability of the source
  • To help you and others reach the most likely and reliable conclusions
  • To give credit to the work of others
  • To help others build on your work
