This page focuses on citing and formatting citations. When writing it is important to cite other researchers' work. UK has a strong policy on plaigiarism so it's important that you give proper credit to authors. There are many styles and formats to use when creating a list of references or a bibliography. Be sure to check with your instructor before selecting a style. Some prefer MLA, while many engineering fields use formats created by their professional societies (e.g., Mining or Civil Engineering use SME or ASCE, respectively). This page presents a variety of sources to help you with your writing. If you are looking for Impact Factors, use the link in the left column box at the top.
Here are some resources explaining what you need to know about plagiarism.
Plagiarism: What it is and how to avoid it? - An excellent resource page from Indiana University/Bloomington.
OWL - Purdue Online Writing Lab - Another excellent site that has numerous tools to help you avoid plagiarizing.
