Advanced Research: Citation Style Guides

This guide is for MSJC students and advanced researchers and features topics such as strategic browsing, finding data and research tips to make your research process more efficient.

Citation Generators - Library Databases

Once you open an article, most library databases offer tools to copy citations. You can usually find this option as part of a tools menu or some kind of icon.

Be sure to check computer-generated citations for accuracy before listing them in your References/Works Cited page, as some may not be 100% accurate.

Citation Generators

Citation generators can help you to create citations and works cited/references/bibliographies for your assignments. If you decide to use a citation generator, review your results carefully to be sure the citation is accurate. Some generators contain formatting errors or may not be updated to the latest edition of a particular citation style. If in doubt, refer to the appropriate style manual for definitive information.
