Can I charge people to read an article I wrote if I have cited sources in it?

Say I wanted to write an article on education reform but I want to be factual so I use information from research articles or other sources. I use in text citations and have a references page so I'm not plagiarizing. Can I charge people to have access to this writing or is that not allowed because I'm not using completely orginal information just orginal wording? Do I have to get permission first?

    Sure, of course.  That's exactly how it works.

    Siting sources is IRRELEVANT to if you are plagiarizing. It is also IRRELEVANT to if you can charge for the article. That said, if you need to ask, you have FAR MORE research to do before you are qualified to write the article.
