The Research Cycle – Citing your sources

Citing is an important part of the research process – you need to give credit to the authors of the sources you used! Keeping track of your articles can be messy. We suggest you consider using a reference manager program to manage your citations. Free examples include Zotero or Mendeley. Check out the help sheets to get started!
