As a student, I have written a lot of papers. Considering that I still have a long way to go until my education is complete, research papers and essays are not going away any time soon. The best part about all of those is citing my sources, which can get tedious when some classes want MLA and others want APA (because who wants Chicago anymore?). Sure, there are citation machines that are immensely helpful, but what if you could just get what you need straight from the Google Docs web search? Well, El Goog has students covered.
The new feature tacks onto Explore in Docs, which Google rolled out back in September as a research and design aid. Adding citations is really easy: any source links that need to be credited will be added as footnotes at the bottom of the document. The three big formats are present and available for use. This fancy update will be hitting users in the G Suite for Education track starting tomorrow, December 6.
