Citing your sources is important for a variety of reasons, including:
According to the ERAU Student Handbook (2013-2014), "Plagiarism is recognized by the University as an act of academic dishonesty. It is defined as taking the ideas, writings, and/or words of another and representing them as one’s own" (p. 169).
Citation generators are sometimes helpful for creating citations quickly and easily. However, remember to ALWAYS check your citations for accuracy in the appropriate citation style guide.
