APSA (American Political Science Association) Citation Guide: Citation Management


Citation managers help you keep track of the articles, books, and other resources you find, as well as help you cite them in the appropriate style, both in the text of your paper and in your references or works cited list. For more help with citation managers, ask a librarian!
