It is important to give credit to your sources for many reasons:
- To show your reader that you've done proper research by sharing the quality resources you used
- To be a responsible researcher by giving credit to other experts and their ideas.
- To avoid plagiarism by properly quoting the words and ideas of others.
- To give your reader the information they need to track down your sources if they would like to read further.
