Can someone please help me out here?
I have a research proposal to present. I had a novel idea to present. First things first, I googled the idea and could not find it anywhere. So far so good. So I wrote down in my research proposal that 'No system had implemented (insert my idea here)...'.
However, when I peer reviewed this writing to a friend, he strongly suggested me to cite the above sentence 'No system..'
My doubt is how do I cite it? I did not find the idea anywhere.
Is my choice of using this sentence 'No system..' wrong?
