When writing a research paper or report, it is normal to include references and quotations from the work of others. This is for one or more of the following reasons:

■ to cite evidence or opinions from an authority on the subject in support of your argument

■ to put forward someone else's viewpoint that you intend to argue against

■ to show the range of source materials you have used to support or challenge your own ideas

■ to acknowledge that your arguments derive from the work of others and thereby put them into their academic context
