One of the major challenges writers face in research writing is to effectively use sources in their papers. A writer who relies too heavily on sources might have an essay that is overrun with citations and contains few of the writer's ideas. A writer who does not know how to skillfully paraphrase or summarize may fill the essay with long quotations. A writer who uses unreliable or uncredible sources will weaken the argument or analysis.
