Citation Tools

Citation management tools can help you to create and organize your reference sources, but

the computer and/or database generated citations might not be always correct. 

Remember that you and only you are responsible for the final product of your citations!!! 

**GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT**

(What you type in the box is what comes out in the citation)
