Q. How do I cite article sources?


To cite articles, you have several options:

  1. Use the style manual: APA, MLA, or Chicago.  You can use the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) and/or the APA Style Blog for additional help.

  2. Some databases will now perform that function for you.  Look for a cite icon.

  3. If you have many items in your bibliography, you might want to use RefWorks to organize and cite your sources.

  4. Google Scholar has a cite function, too.  Type in the title of your resource and click on the cite function.  

If you choose to use a database or software tool to help you with citing sources, remember that it is your responsibility to verify the accuracy of your citations!
