Managing References Tips

  • Cite only what you've read.
  • Be consistent: Select and use one citation style in your document. Don't mix citation styles.
  • If you're not sure how to cite a particular type of document, use the closest example provided by your citation style guide.
  • Citations downloaded from search engines or websites may be incomplete or inaccurate. Check the original document to confirm that the citation is complete and correct. 
  • If you cite a web page or blog, save a back-up copy for future reference. Websites often change or even disappear.
