Course Description


Supporting what you claim in your research with reliable sources is a fundamental value of good research. Proper citing and referencing external sources enable readers to explore other related work while also connecting your research to the greater literature landscape.

As a new researcher, you would also hope that future readers of your work cite and attribute your work as well! This session will present and offer opportunities to practice strategies for organising, managing, and citing the sources that you find for your projects.

Instructors: James Murphy, Bronte Burnette-Chiang, and Kyla Flanagan
