Starting Point

This online resource is a great starting point for how to cite sources in the most commonly used styles.

Always consult with your professor to determine which style you should use for any paper or project.  For citation help, ask for assistance at the library reference desk or the Meredith College Learning Center.

Citation Creators

Many research databases such as EBSCO and ProQuest offer "cite this item" features, which generate citations in the most popular styles (MLA, APA, etc.) for any source that you find. You can then copy-paste these directly into your papers.

WARNING: Be sure to double-check these citations against the rules for proper style, since they are NOT always accurate.

Mendeley

Mendeley is a free research management tool that allows you to collect and organize the sources that you find in library databases and on the internet.  Mendeley offers the ability to share references and collaborate with others in groups, and it integrates with Microsoft Word, allowing you to automatically insert citations into a Word document and generate bibliographies using a variety of citation styles.    

Mendeley works particularly well with the Scopus database, allowing seamless exporting of citations from Scopus into your Mendeley reference library.
