Within the academic community, it is very important to cite and reference your sources in reports, papers and essays. Western University takes plagiarism and citing sources very seriously. Plagiarizing or failing to cite is considered an academic offence (see Western University's Scholastic Discipline and Academic Sanctions for Undergraduate and Graduate Students).
Citation tools such as RefWorks and Write-N-Cite can assist with referencing and creating bibliographies, and are free for the Western community. To create an account, please visit Western Libraries RefWorks site.
You may also wish to explore our guides on other citation software including Zotero and Mendeley.
