PS301: Research Design & Analysis: Citations

Manage your citations

By now, you know how to cite sources and it isn't a big deal to get each one.  But when you are doing Capstone or other significant research, you are likely to use A LOT of sources.  This is where EndNote comes in handy.  By creating a free account, you can create, organize, and use all the citations you need much more easily than if you just copy and paste them one at a time into your paper.  Specifically, using EndNote you can:

  • Add a citation to your EndNote account with the click of a button.
  • Organize your citations, such as based on the assignment or even the section of your paper.
  • Add your citations to your paper with the click of a button - both in-text and works cited at one time - using Cite While You Write (see below).
  • Format your citations to whichever style you need (APA, MLA, etc.) quickly and easily.

For help, see below:
