It is important to make responsible, ethical and legal use of the information that is used when preparing an academic work. By including bibliographic references we identify ideas and information that have been taken from other authors. If you also use a standardized citation style, the recognition of the source used is favored so that anyone else can locate those documents.

The preparation of an academic or scientific work requires the inclusion of a systematic and structured bibliography. In its writing there are two fundamental elements:

The bibliographic citation managers are tools that allow you to compile a bibliography, organize it, comment on it or share it, use it for the preparation of a manuscript with a view to its publication or even adapt its style to the publishing standards of a specific scientific journal. RefWorks is the application recommended by the UAM for managing personal bibliographies of teachers, researchers and students. The UAM libraries offer training courses on the preparation of bibliographies and the use of RefWorks.
