Citation Styles

There are a number of citation formats that computer scientists may use. Always check with your professor to ensure that you are using the correct style for your assignment.


The Towson University Writing Center is also an excellent resource for citation assistance.


Citation Management

Citation managers are great tools for keeping your research organized. You can use them to keep track of references you want to cite in your paper, share resources with your peers, and automatically generate citations for you. These tools can streamline your research process and save you a lot of time. However, make sure you double check any automatically generated citations for accuracy -- they can sometimes have minor errors.
