Citing Tools & Citation Managers

Here are some citation tools and resources to help you properly cite.

** Please note that RefWorks will no longer be supported by UMD after Summer 2016.

There are several reasons why it is important to cite

  • It is important to give the proper credit to the person or group who spent the time researching and writing in order to provide that information.
  • This allows your instructor (and maybe one day the reader of your article?!) to find the source later if they want to read it themself.
  • Citing experts gives credibility to the argument of your paper.
  • Indicates that you did a thorough job researching your topic.
  • It is part of the UMD's Code of Academic Integrity.
