Citelighter: Research, Write & Cite

See on Scoop.itLearning, Education, and Neuroscience

Many teachers are ending their semesters with large scale assignments that require digital research.

Pamela D Lloyd‘s insight:

Even at the college level, I find that students often leave citation preparation for the end of the writing cycle, after they’ve written a research paper. But, this just makes more work and opens them to acusations of plagiarism, as it’s harder to identify the source of the material, once it’s been integrated into the paper. Even when each use of someone else’s material has been identified inline, if the correct citations on the References or Works Cited pages are missing or incorrect, the student is going to have difficulty pulling the source material together. Using a tool such as the one described here, may help students and other researchers to avoid citation headaches.
