Citing your work provides the reader with an honest representation of your research. Citations tell readers about the sources used to write a paper and give proper credit to the authors of those sources. Failing to cite your sources is academically dishonest, and could lead to charges of plagiarism.
The American Psychological Association developed the APA citation style to standardize writing in scientific and social scientific disciplines, including nursing.
