Writing & Citation Help

  • Woodsworth Academic Support for Undergraduate Students - The Woodsworth College Academic Writing Centre offers one-on-one help with all aspects of writing in all subjects, at all stages of the writing process: understanding the assignment, developing a thesis and an argument, citing sources correctly, organizing, drafting, revising, and editing. 
  • School of Graduate Studies Writing Centre for Graduate Students - One-on-on​e consultations ​are available for graduate students who seek individualized assistance with their writing. In these sessions, trained instructors work with you to improve your capacity to plan, write, and revise your academic assignments. Instructors do not edit for you; they teach you to revise and edit your own work.
  • How to Cite - When you pose a research question, a review of the literature will provide you with an understanding of what others have to say on the matter. Your research paper provides you with the opportunity to join in the conversation with these scholars. Ensuring your voice and ideas are distinguishable from those of others is what proper citation is all about. Helping you use, integrate and cite your sources is the focus of the following pages.
  • ProQuest RefWorks - is a citation management tool which allows you to keep track of your citations used in your research. User can also annotate and organize research, while collaborating with other colleagues on campus. RefWorks is available to current students, staff, and faculty at the University of Toronto.
