Physics: Citation Help

How to cite?

Welcome! The purpose of this page is to assist you in formatting citations and creating your bibliography. There are many different formats to use when citing a source in a paper. 

  • If you are writing a paper for a class, you should use the format recommended by your professor.
  • If you are writing a paper for publication, you should use the format recommended by the publisher.

If you have any questions, problems, or comments about citations or the tools recommended in this guide, please ask a librarian.

BibTeX

The word "BibTeX'' stands for a tool and a file format which are used to describe and process lists of references, mostly in conjunction with LaTeX documents. Most UI Libraries' databases have an option to export citations in BibTeX format.
