The ABC's of Citing and Referencing In academic writing, in order to discuss a topic, you want to present information that has been supported by research. When you write a paper, even if you create a response based on past learning and experiences, you need to tie that information into the assignment objectives and topic concepts. This information will come from your assigned reading materials. Thus, those sources will need to be cited and referenced. Anything that you discuss in your class assignments cannot be sufficiently addressed without providing information that relates to the assigned reading materials. Even if your assignment asks you to provide a personal example or opinion, your information still needs to relate to the relevant topic concepts found in your assigned reading materials. Thus, the topic concepts do not come from you. Therefore you should be providing citations and references for those resources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
