Why Cite?

We cite sources to acknowledge the work of others, as well as to avoid academic dishonesty or plagiarism.

The University of Toronto has made available a comprehensive set of guidelines on How NOT to Plagiarize, which deserves to be read by every student

Citation Management Tools

On August 15, 2015, Laurentian University ended its subscription to RefWorks. If you already have a RefWorks account, you should still be able to access it in order to export your citations.

To learn about alternative citation management tools, including free ones, please consult the Managing Citations research guide.

Citation Styles in Laurentian's Environmental Studies Program
