Citing your Sources

In the biomedical sciences and allied health fields, the most popular citation styles are the APA Style (American Psychological Association) and Vancouver Style (also known as the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (http://www.icmje.org/). APA is used by nursing and most allied health sciences disciplines.

Consider using a citation management software to simplify the process of collecting, organizing, and formatting your citations. UI Libraries has a campus wide subscription to EndNote. The desktop version is available for faculty, staff, and graduate students, and the online version (EndNote Basic) is available for all affiliates.

The library offers group instruction or individual consultation for both tools. For more information in either tool, view the citing sources guide.
