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:

  • If you conduct a OneSearch book or article search, when you have the full record open look for citation OR " " link at top of record. It will format that record in several citation styles.
  • 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.
  • If you decide to e-mail the article, before you "send" it, look for CITATION / FORMAT option. You may be able to e-mail all your results in a particular style.

See our Style Manuals and Citation Methods Libguide.

Consider using one of these three CITATION MANAGERS  These can be  good options if you are going to write a major research paper, have multiple writing projects or are preparing something for for publication.
