) For this, I’m going to introduce you to an awesome, totally free citation tool called Easy Bib.
Important Tip: Make sure that when you use Easy Bib, you are filling in a template provided by Easy Bib and NOT asking Easy Bib to pull information directly from the source.
To get the BEST research, you have to ask questions. The idea is that you get to the root of whatever you are talking about so you can write a quality essay on it. But you don’t want to just type all your questions into Google and pick the first source you see.
Not every piece of information on the internet is true, or accurate.
This goes on a separate page, after your main essay and may be titled “Works Cited” or “Bibliography”.
(Make sure to check the guidelines, and ask your teacher!And yes, many teachers WILL read the essay they assigned before it is due and give you pointers on how to make it better. They want you to succeed and they’re the ones grading it — I think it’s safe to say they know what they’re talking about! I would hate for you to hand in your research paper and for it to have all these grammar and spelling errors that Microsoft Word doesn’t catch! For most of us, writing a research paper is no walk in the park. Unfortunately, it’s important that you know how to do it! To help with this, you may be familiar with the option to “Bookmark” your pages online — do this for online sources.You can create a Diigo account and one free group for your links. 🙂 Click here to quickly get it set up so when you write your research paper you don’t have any spelling or grammar errors! I have a 3-week timeline you can follow when writing a research paper. It may sound like waaay too early to start, but it gives you enough time to: It’s because the shirt probably wasn’t meant to go in the dryer, and if you had read the tag, you’d have saved yourself one whole article of clothing! Especially since writing a research paper requires more effort than a regular paper might.You need to save the original place you found that information from so that you can cite it in your essay, and later on in the bibliography.You don’t want to have to go back later and dig up the information a second time just to list the source you got it from!
