Research: Cite Your Sources

Creating a Bibliography

The importance of citing sources of information cannot be overemphasized.  The citation of a source provides the reader with the background necessary to validate (or invalidate) the value and accuracy of the information.  Additionally, citation rightfully gives credit to the authors, editors, and others who contributed to the publishing or dissemination of the information.

There are a large number of styles to choose from in establishing a proper bibliography.  Submissions to journals typically must adhere to specific rules for the given journal.  Requirements in an academic coursework setting are usually established by the instructor. 

Citation management software saves your time by helping you keep track of the articles, books and other resources you use, and helps you instantly format your bibliographies in the citation style of your choosing.
