A citation is a way of giving individuals credit for their creative and intellectual work that you used to support your research. The citation can be used to identify a particular source and to combat plagiarism. By citing and referring consulted material to a piece of educational work, you will not only be able to more easily verify others’ views of facts in your work, but you will work in an ethical and honest way. Acknowledgments can be in the form of text citations, footnotes, endnotes and/or bibliographies. Different citing and reference styles cater to the specific needs of different disciplines.
