Why Should I Cite?

Using other people’s research or ideas without giving them due credit is plagiarism. Since BibMe™ makes it easy to create citations, build bibliographies and acknowledge other people’s work, there is no excuse to plagiarize. Don’t be a thief—save your grade, use BibMe™ and give credit to those who deserve it!


It is ethical to give authors and artists credit for their work.


By establishing provenance you strengthen your own work.


It helps an interested reader delve deeper. It’s good karma!
