What is CItation:
CItations are the praiseworthy words for all those resources, which one uses in their writing works. Like in writing the research papers, the research scholars need to take help from their previous papers or works on the concerned topic and subject. When the same research scholar pays their gratitude in their paper, then it is called as Citation. In this way, the research scholar admits that he has taken the certain portion of their paper from someone else.
Why we use Citation:
Whenever one uses e-resources of any type such as e-books, e-journals, or any Website for writing a paper or any other purpose, then it is mandatory to give credit to the original author by properly citing the sources.
