The final part of the research process is to communicate and support your conclusions. Citing sources gathered during your research helps you build your argument. Including graphics or other creative expressions can illustrate a point or add impact to your project.

Incorporating the work of others is acceptable in academic writing, but you have a responsibility to let your audience know when you are using someone else's ideas and where you found that information.
