How Do I Write a Research Paper?

Some helpful books, links, and other advice when it comes to writing a research paper.

Managing Your Information

Remember to keep records of all your research. This will help you if you want to find a source again. You will also need this information when you prepare the bibliography for your paper.

Most databases allow you to print, save or email articles. If you are affiliated with Nipissing University or Canadore College, you can also export search results and article links directly into RefWorks. RefWorks is a handy tool that allows you to import, store and organize references in your personal RefWorks account, format in-text citations, and create bibliographies.

As an alternative, there are many free citation management tools that are freely available, such as Zotero and Mendeley.
