    Citing Your Research

    You have several options to help you format your research using proper citation styles.

    Many of our databases have citation formatting options:

    1). When you get some results from a research database, look for a CITE link. It might show your article in one of several bibliographic formats.

    2.) If you decide to e-mail the article, look for a CITATION FORMAT option. You may be able to e-mail all your results in a particular style.

    See our Style Manual and Citation Methods Libguide, you can get lots of help there.

    Consider using our REFWORKS Citation Management software. A good option if you are going to write a major research paper or preparing something for for publication.
