Why do I have to cite the sources that I use?

There are two main reasons:

  • To give credit to the people who created the information/wrote the article/conducted the research

  • To let others see where you found your information, letting them check the source for themselves​


There are a number of ways that you can go about citing your sources. We have compiled a list of our favourite ways to cite our sources below!

The most important thing to note is that each time you cite your sources you should try and use a consistent citation style throughout your document/video/paper. Here are the most common styles for each subject area:

  • English/Language: MLA

  • Social Sciences/Education: APA

  • Humanities: Chicago Notes and Bibliography

  • Science: Chicago Author-Date
