How To Do Academic Research

To start your research, use our Topic Strategy guide.

Citation Strategy

If you are tackling a major paper you may want to use a bibliography management program to organize your sources. You can import citations directly from databases and organize them into different folders.

Mendeley and Zotero are some of the freely-available bibliographic management programs that will store your citations.
