An introduction to U of T's policies on plagiarism and academic integrity, citing sources using APA style and formatting references using citation management software. We also suggest additional resources for more help with academic research and writing.

Citation Management Software

Citation management software makes it easier to keep track of your sources and to format your citations. 

U of T subscribes to RefWorks, a database that lets you add references you find in the library catalogue and in article databases.  RefWorks also works with Microsoft Word to allow you to format your in-text citations and reference list more easily.

You can also use a number of free citation management services, such as Zotero. This citation management guide can help you compare the various free and paid services available, including U of T price discounts. 

No citation management software is perfect - for example, it's easier to add books from the library catalogue to RefWorks, but it's easier to add blogs or websites to Zotero - and no software can tell you how and when to cite your sources.  However, citation management software can save you valuable time formatting and organizing your research.
