GEOG 2110: Foundations of Geographic Research

This guide offers resources and tips for students beginning research in topics related to geography and the environment.

Citation Managers

Citation managers help to corral your research and citations. You can also use them to collaborate on research projects with peers and colleagues. UNT provides access to RefWorks. There are also a number of free citation managers (with upgrade options).

Writing and Citation Help

The UNT Writing Center is a great resource to use for assistance with formatting style and citation, writing style, organization, flow and more. The lab accepts appointments and walk-ins, but appointments are encouraged to guarantee time with a tutor. To make an appointment, drop by the Writing Center or call at (940) 565-2563.
