An introduction to finding and citing academic research in BME.

Cite it Right

Librarians suggest APA over MLA for sophomores and above in the science and engineering fields as it is similar to MLA in structure and format but emphasizes the year, which is more important in engineering than in the humanities.

However, if you feel comfortable with MLA, by all means keep using it!


Citation Management Tools can be of use as you start to collect more and more citations. Try one out and see if it fits in your workflow.
