Is it bad if the majority of your EE is referenced?

Recommended Posts

I don't really know how to explain but I've just started writing my EE. I've only started my Introduction but ALL of the sentences have been citied at the end. Literally, everything I have written has come from a scientific journal.

I'm not sure if that is bad or not...

IB appreciates it when you cite your sources, and obviously your work is more credible if you use scientific journals and the like. However, if everything is cited, so far it's just paraphrasing other peoples' work rather than your own. The point of the EE is to use your knowledge to bring in something new, rather than reiterating what has already been said, so they might not take it well if it looks like you're just taking things from somewhere else. I'd suggest cutting down on the citations.
