GEOG 3400/5400: Population Geography: Citing your Sources
5 ways to cite your sources correctly

- Use Google Scholar "Cite" to format your citation
- Export or print formatted citations from research databases
- Ask a librarian for help.
If you are only using scholarly journals and books it's fairly straightforward to cite your sources. However, if you are also citing maps, datasets, websites, legal information and so on things can get more complicated. Librarians will be happy to help you cite your sources properly in the style required by a professor or editor.
