One of the common complaints I hear about Google Docs and other online word processors is the inability to easily cite your sources. While Google Doc does have a built in system to cite sources using the Research tool, I’m here to offer another option. Cite This For Me is a fantastic tool for citing a wide variety of sources ranging from standard magazine articles to podcasts. It even includes dissertations as an option. Once you’ve entered the publication information for your source, Cite This For Me lets you select the format you want to use such as AMA, MLA, or Chicago. Finally, when you’ve finished citing all your sources and your bibliography is complete, you can copy and paste it into whatever editor you are using.
