How to Manage References—Tips on Inserting Citations & Avoiding Plagiarism

Session Agenda

The Royal Society of Medicine in collaboration with Karger Publishers and Enago conducted an informative webinar to help researchers efficiently manage references and citations while preparing their manuscripts and avoid plagiarism. Citations allow research scholars to acknowledge significant scientific contributions by other researchers in their field and increase their credibility as a scientist. It also works as evidence for assertions and claims that researchers make in their manuscript. Further, an exhaustive and methodical reference list is a hallmark of a well-informed researcher. In this session, we helped researchers understand the good citation practices and shared tips to draft a well-organized bibliography.

Researchers will learn:

  • Why proper citation and referencing is important?
  • Why and what should you cite?
  • An overview of different citation styles
  • Where can you find citations/references?
  • Forward and reverse searches
  • Paraphrasing and quoting
  • How to avoid plagiarism
  • Reference management tools

Who should attend this session?

  • Early-stage researchers
  • Medical researchers
  • Health professionals
