Google Released A New Citation Feature in Google Docs to Help You Easily Cite Your Sources

Google Released A New Citation Feature in Google Docs to Help You Easily Cite Your Sources | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Google announced today the release of a new important feature to Explore in Google Docs. Explore can quickly add a citation of your choice.

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Just tried out the Explore icon in the lower right corner of a Google Doc: you can search a topic, choose an article, then in the document choose the type of citation you wanted created at the top of the document, and click on Cite as Footnote. It adds a footnote fully formatted with links to your document.

Wikipedia is often vilified in educational circles. The site’s loudest critics think that it offers biased, non-credible information. Many teachers specifically ban students from using the site from as a reference in research papers.
Becky Roehrs's insight:

I like to use Wikipedia to get a general idea about a topic, and to use some of their sources they list-sometimes the references are very good.
