Description

Any research process is an amalgamation of the researcher’s own primary efforts, supplemented and supported by secondary data that they may quote as part of their study. It is imperative that researchers learn how to compile references and citations, not just to avoid plagiarism but also to build a robust case for their own work.

This specially curated program shows you how to address the many challenges of citing sources and listing down references, while formulating your research paper. It highlights various styles and techniques on how to cite correctly throughout your documentation. In this course, you will also learn how to safeguard your research paper by adhering to the basic guidelines when it comes to citations and references in your scientific research.
