Why Give Credit?
You need to give credit to sources for several reasons:
To let your readers know how your views, "agree with, disagree with, or modify the views of published experts in the field."
- By citing your sources, you are providing your reader with additional information--such as books, articles, and websites
--on the topic you are writing about.
- "By listing the author of a quotation and providing a page number, you're telling the reader, 'If you don't believe that this person really wrote this, you can look it up for yourself.'"
- "It's the honest thing to do."

In the case of EBMgt, it also supports and gives credence to your evidence based sources.
