Bibliographic Software Options

  • Zotero @ WSU
    Zotero is a great way for undergraduates to gather and manage database citations, abstracts, and your own research notes. Zotero also helps you format research papers - both the in-text citations and works cited.
  • EndNote @ WSU
    EndNote Web is a professional bibliographic management tool that offers sophisticated editing capabilities to prepare professional publications, dissertations, and theses. Of course it also manages citations, abstracts, and other elements of resource information.

Citation Analysis

Graphic from the U. of Buffalo Libraries

"In academia, according to the principle of meritocracy, scholars, departments, and institutions are evaluated through objective criteria. One of the main instruments used to measure the quantity and quality of academic output is citation analysis. A citation count is used as a proxy of impact, signaling quality, because it informs how often a given published work, author, or journal is cited in the literature."

"Citations." International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences. Ed. William A. Darity, Jr. 2nd ed. Vol. 1. Detroit: Macmillan Reference USA, 2008. 538-540. Gale Virtual Reference Library. Web. 13 Aug. 2012.
