Why you Need to Cite Sources
Academic writing involves finding, evaluating, and using information resources.  When you use research, quotes, ideas, or data you have found in books, articles, webpages, etc. you need to cite the source of your information.

Many scholarly organizations and publications have developed systems for documenting and citing sources.  The social sciences use the —American Psychological Association (APA), —American Sociological Association (ASA), and the Chicago/Turabian systems. Many good online guides and tools are available to help you properly cite sources.
