Informatics Literacy for Medical Students

Why is citation important?

  1. Citations provide credibility to your writing. They support research statements and conclusions. 
  2. Citations provide credit to the original authors' works. 
  3. Readers refer to citations to further develop knowledge of the topic.
  4. Referring to citations in the sources you read will also provide additional sources for your research.
