Opere citato

“Opere citato” (abbreviated as “op. cit.”) is a Latin phrase that means “in the work already cited.” It is frequently used in academic and scholarly writing to avoid repeating the complete citation information each time a source is referenced, making the text more concise and reader-friendly. When you encounter “op. cit.” in a citation or reference list, it means that the reader should consult the earlier citation for full details. By using this method, the text becomes clearer and easier to understand.
