GLBL 130: Introduction to Global Studies

Why cite your sources?

While preparing a research paper, you will gather information that supports your ideas, which you find in works created by others.

A citation gives your reader the information needed to locate these works.

If you don't credit the authors by citing their works in your paper, you are committing plagiarism, which is not acceptable at Northampton Community College.

Citing your sources proves to your professor that you did the research and that you learned something new.
