    Kindly credit *accordingly* if you want to share this information

    The first sentence seems correct, but I'm unsure.
    The second sentence seems wrong with the inclusion of "as" before the word "accordingly". What is the reason if it's correct and if it's incorrect?

    1) Kindly credit accordingly if you want to share this information.

    2) Kindly credit as accordingly if you want to share this information.

    Thank you!

    I don't understand what you mean by 'credit'.

    'As' is not used before 'accordingly'.

    Re: Kindly credit *accordingly* if you want to share this information

    "credit" as in acknowledging the source of a piece of information. For example, if someone wants to use certain segments of information from a book, it is only right that the person should acknowledge the source of information. Probably I have phrased it wrongly.

    How should I phrase the sentence in this case?

    Thank you!

    And it is not "share the information" either, it is making use of another person's information.

    Please acknowledge the source of the information if you wish to make use of/reproduce information from (this website?).

    Please do not misunderstand me. I read that sentence in an article, but weren't sure if the words used were correct, hence my query.

    Thank you.

    Why didn't you tell us that in your OP?

    Sorry, what do you mean by OP?

    I also do not know what I have done wrongly --> "Why didn't you tell us that in your OP?"
    Please help me to understand.

    Thank you.

    'OP' means 'original post' (or 'original poster' in other contexts).

    If you are quoting somebody else's sentence or text, it always helps us to give you a better answer if we know where you read or heard it and who wrote it.

    Without this information we assume that you wrote the sentence yourself.
