This study evaluates the characteristics of the citation sources in 15 papers presented in an international linguistics conference in Indonesia to find some model papers that employ appropriate citation sources in appropriate ways. The papers consist of 3 groups: 5 were written in Indonesia, 5 in English, and 5 in Malay. The evaluation is of the total number, language, format, age, and presentation of the citation sources in the reference lists of the papers. The findings reveal that the citation sources in the three groups have different characteristics. Moreover, the data show inaccuracies in presenting the citation sources and inconsistencies with the acceptable academic writing conventions, which do not support good academic papers. This study, which can be a significant contribution to the teaching and learning of academic writing, also discusses some potential influence of the characteristics of citation sources on the quality of an academic paper.
