booksWhy to Cite

Why should you use citations?

  • To give credit to the sources you’ve used
  • To enable others to find the same sources you’ve used
  • To be part of the "scholarly conversation"
    Kenneth Burke, in The Philosophy of Literary Form (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1941), provides the analogy of academic scholarship as an infinite, ongoing conversation, which you join, contribute to, and take from, and to which others, likewise, do the same.
