Introduction to Citation for Business Research and Writing

Citations are required and expected in many settings, especially in academic work. There are many ways that citations benefit students, scholars, and professionals:

  • Avoid plagiarism: Citations give credit to ideas you've gotten from someone else

  • Demonstrate credibility: Citations show that you've done your research

  • Leave a path: Citations help you find information you've used to support your argument - and allow readers to assess that information, too

  • Join professional conversations: Citations link your work to the work of others

Using a consistent format makes it easier to provide accurate and enough information. This page provides resources and tips for citing business information. 

The resources here are a starting point. Please refer to style manuals, contact your librarian, or stop by the Write Place for clarifications about citing sources.
