Citing Resources

Once you find articles to use in your research paper, you are required to cite the source of work you quote, paraphrase, or summarize. It is important that you credit authors for their work and their writing.

There are several different styles for citing sources. Please consult with your instructors about their preferred style for your research paper.

One of my favorite tools for creating bibliographies and reference lists RefWorks, a Web-based citation manager program available to faculty, staff, and students.

RefWorks allows users to create their own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases (ProQuest, EBSOC, etc.). If this is your first time using RefWorks, you will need to sign up for an individual account by creating a personalized login name and password. An online RefWorks Tutorial and a RefWorks Quick Start guide are also available.

In case you need more than RefWorks, below are links to recommended electronic information on citation guides.
