    If you're referring to a source in your dissertation then it needs to be relevant to your argument. You can't just say what it says and leave it.

    The sources you use have to come from credible sources. Wikipedia for example is not reliable. However a journal published by a reputable company e.g. American Psychological Association is reliable because you can be certain it is true.

    Comparisons for what? Between sources? It depends on what you want to compare. Typically "X says this whereas Y says this. This means..."
