MGT371H5: Business Technology Management

A course guide listing resources for the group project assigned to students enrolled in MGT371H5.

CITATION BASICS

You cite your sources to:

  • give credit to those whose work you have used in your presentation or paper;
  • increase your credibility as an author (the power of association!); and
  • enable other readers of your work (and your professor) to reconstruct your argument and build on your argument or thesis.

The basic elements of any citation are:

  • Author(s) - who is responsible for 'creating' this information
  • Title(s) - of article + journal if an article, or book, report, recording or database
  • Date of publication - or when you accessed the information
  • Page or other information, e.g. URL, to help reader locate information again

The order of these elements may change depending on the citation style you use but all citations should have enough information for readers to be able to locate the article, book, or report easily OR to recreate your research using a database.

There are many citation styles but typically, they require:

  • references or footnotes in the body of your paper (and which may be abbreviated), and; 
  • a full, alphabetical list of references at the end of your paper. 

CITATION RESOURCES

Use these citation guides to find examples or models you can use help create correct citations for all kinds of sources - books, articles, websites, videos, social media and more. 

These guides all focus on the databases and resources typically used by business students.
