Why Citations Matter

There are many reasons why it is important to cite the resources that you consult when doing research.  The most important of these are:

  • 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 have consulted.
  • Provides evidence of your research.
  • Properly citing materials is one strategy to help you avoid plagiarizing.

What is plagiarism?

Plagiarism is using another person's work without giving them credit.

At UVM plagiarizing, whether intentional or by accident, is a violation of the  Code of Academic Integrity (PDF).

Easy ways to avoid plagiarizing:

  • Never cut and paste material into a paper.
  • Always cite your sources.
