When citations are being used it is usually because some is writing an article or paper about a subject where they may use the ideas of someone else and they need to give them credit on what is being said. Citations can also be used to show reader where they gotten their information to make what they are talking about become more credible. If we did not cite things we could be in danger of plagiarism or stealing someone else’s views or words which is taken very seriously in schools. Citations are a very important part of writing when it comes to articles and annotated bibliographies. It is something that everyone should have knowledge of doing.
