I'm writing an article about a topic and I found a review with a block of citations that is really interesting.

If I use the same sources in the same sequence (after paraphrasing with my own words), where should I cite the review? Do I put the citation at the acknowledgement or after the used resources?


1 Answer 1


In general, citations should be placed at the point where you actually use the information, not in acknowledgements.

For a case like this, then, you might say something like:

A useful review of this area may be found in [citation], which suggests viewing the field as follows: [paraphrased review material].
