The Right Thing to Do

Citing sources is an important part of academic culture -- you're building on the contribututions of others while seeking new discoveries, knowledge, and understanding. Always cite sources when you use someone else's ideas or work. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism, which violates UHCL's Academic Honesty Policy, even if done unintentionally.

  • Web of Science (multidisciplinary)  Icon
    (1984- ) Results of searches can be sorted by times cited. Use Cited Reference search to find works that cite a specific source article or publication.


EndNote citation management software is available on the library's public computers. Students, faculty, and staff who wish to install and use EndNote at home can download the program by clicking on the EndNote X7 link below and entering their library barcode number and last name to authenticate.
