Citations can be divided into three categories: citation in parentheses: In your writing, you put the source reference in parenthesis. The author's last name, as well as the publishing date and/or page number, are generally included. Note citation: In a footnote or endnote, you cite the source.

There are four referencing techniques or conventions that are regularly utilised. The MLA (Modern Languages Association), the APA (American Psychological Association), the Harvard, and the MHRA (Modern Humanities Research Association) are the four systems.

A citation is a formal reference to a published or unpublished source from which you sought information while writing your research paper. It's worth noting that some disciplines (e.g., law) have their own citation style.

The simplest option for in-text citation is to mention the author's last name and the year of publication in parentheses, as in (Clarke 2001), although the particular manner you cite will depend on the type of style guide you use.

To demonstrate to the reader that you conducted thorough research by citing the sources from which you obtained your data. To be a responsible scholar by acknowledging and giving credit to previous researchers. By quoting words and ideas from other authors, you can prevent plagiarism.
