Resources for Grand Rounds, Presentations and Papers

Why citations matter

  • Gives credit to authors whose works you have used (whether you quote them or not).
  • Provides a trail by which others can locate the materials you consulted. Your colleagues may want to learn more about your topic-- help them out by providing accurate information about the resources you used.
  • Scholarship is a conversation; your works cited list maps that conversation for others.
  • Provides evidence of your research.
  • Properly citing materials is one strategy to help you avoid plagiarizing.
