Citing sources

Pile of academic books

An important principle in scientific research is to always be aware of and build your research on existing research. This is primarily done by citing sources. It is not considered scientific to write about a topic using only your own ideas and thoughts. Failing to cite sources can also result in you getting accused of plagiarism. It is therefore very important to be thorough when using and citing sources.
