Consider using a citation management software, such as Endnote, to simplify the process of collecting, organizing, and formatting your citations. The library offers group instruction or individual consultation for both tools.
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/)
EndNote is a desktop software designed to help store and organize bibliographic references in the "libraries" (collections) on user's own computer equipment. Users can create separate bibliographies or insert citations from their libraries into papers they are writing by using the "cite while you write" feature. Users can also enter references into the libraries manually or download them from online databases.
The most recent edition of the APA Publication Manual can be found in the Reference area of the University Libraries.
