What Is Citation
Citation tells readers about the sources you have used in your work. It can be found in the text or at the end of the work as a bibliography / reference list.
Why Do We Have to Cite
Elements of a Cited Work
Use the elements of cited works to compose a list of references at the end of your paper so that readers can retrieve the items you mention in your text.
For example, if you mention the book Ghetto at the Center of the World: Chungking Mansions, Hong Kong by Gordon Mathews in your text, you must document this source:
There exists a wealth of information closely related to our life and study in various sources of social media such as
Facebook YouTube Twitter Blog B, etc.
To cite, note the major elements of social media materials -- Author, Date, Title and Source.
Cite correctly others' work in your texts to avoid plagiarism.
Apply a proper citation style in your writing.
