Style Guides & Citing References

Academic writing, such as a manuscript submitted for publication, is typically dictated by a style guide. A style guide provides guidelines for creating citations & bibliographies, as well as formatting your document and more. 

Some common style guides, or citation formats, are:

Reference Management

Reference management tools allow you to collect, organize, and store bibliographic information about source material such as journal articles, books, reports, and multimedia. A reference management tool also makes creating, formatting, and switching citation styles in bibliographies and in-text citations easy.

While there are many different reference management tools out there, the library offers support for EndNote and Zotero. Refer to the Reference Management Guide for tutorials and instructions on how to obtain a copy of Endnote or Zotero for your own use.
