Keep track of readings

It's a good idea to use a reference manager to keep track of things you've read and want to cite in the future.  RefWorks is supported at Notre Dame.  Among other things, reference managers can help you create a bibliography in a standard format, like the APA 6 style.

Avoid plagiarism

"Plagiarism is using others' ideas and words without clearly acknowledging the source of that information."  See this page for tips.

Write well

Writing a research paper based on a review of the literature may be different from other writing you've done. Below are a few resources for writing and formatting well.
