Insert citations using Google Docs (see also 9 other cool tips)


Google Docs contains a sidebar designed for researching — open it by clicking Tools > Research.

This sidebar allows you to search for images, quotations, and web results so you can easily insert them into a document. It also makes it easy to search for academic studies and quickly insert the appropriate footnotes or citations for MLA, APA, or Chicago citation formats. 

You can quickly insert citations to web results, too — it can be an easy way to build a bibliography for a school paper.
