Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a new online game called BiblioBouts to help students cite their research papers. The game turns collecting citations into a competitive event, pitting students against their classmates. Students are rewarded for their research skills and their ability to differentiate between good and bad material. To play, students find sources, which are judged by their peers for relevance and credibility; then they evaluate the worth of sources their classmates find. They gain more points the more sources they assess accurately and the better their own sources are judged.
