Citation Rules & Writing a Research Paper

Academic writing has generally agreed-upon rules in the world of academia. One of these rules is the obligation to cite and reference sources. Adherence to citation principles ensures that the reader understands the contribution of current research in the context of existing literature. The citation provides research credibility and provides the information necessary to locate the sources in the course syllabus or research paper on which the author was based.
