When doing research it is often necessary to consult other research. Citations help you to show others that you've done your research and where your information came from. This lets them know that they can trust your work and follow or extend your research.
Citations also help you to build your credibility as a scholar. By citing your sources you are showing respect for the researchers you got your information from.
