Agriculture Graduate Student Orientation Fall 2021: What Is Citation Management Software?

A resource guide that is full of helpful information for Ag Grad students.

What Is Citation Management Software?

Citation management software collects citations from various sources, organizes them, and compiles them into a bibliography or list of works cited. The software helps the user create citations in numerous different styles such as APA, MLA, Turabian, and Chicago.

Citations, bibliographies, or cited references pages generated by these programs are not always 100% accurate. Double-checking the citations with the use of a style guide is recommended.

Avoiding Plagiarism

"What is Plagiarism?

Nearly everyone understands that copying passages verbatim from another writer's work and representing them as one's own work constitute plagiarism. Yet plagiarism involves much more. At LSU plagiarism is defined to include any use of another's work and submitting that work as one's own. This means not only copying passages of writing or direct quotations but also paraphrasing or using structure or ideas without citation. Learning how to paraphrase and when and how to cite is an essential step in maintaining academic integrity." From LSU Student Advocacy & Accountability

Here are some links to help you avoid plagiarism when working on your papers.
