CITATION MANAGEMENT

Managing your citations is an important component of academic writing. Always check your citations for accuracy—spelling and syntax errors are common, especially when using computer-generated citations.

Tools to help you manage citations:

  • Zotero (recommended) – a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite and share your research sources
  • My EBSCOhost – Create folders and save content within EBSCO databases (including the EDS) by signing in and following the prompts to create a free My EBSCOhost account (your Quest username and password will not work)
  • BibMe
  • Citethisforme
  • Mendeley
  • Son of Citation Machine
