Writing & Citing

Consult the Library's Writing and Citing resources to learn more about how to use a citation management database to track, build, edit and produce in text citations and bibliographies. There are many different and free citation management tools available including my favorite Zotero. Not essential, nor needed for this assignment, but they will change your life when doing papers!!!! Invite yourself by booking an appointment to see how this works. A more extensive list may be found here. Learn more about Zotero at the Chemistry Library Resource Guide under the Writing and Citing tab.

Lots of new citation management tools including Citation MachinebibmeAPA Referencing Generator and EasyBib, but these are not perfect and require a final edit using the appropriate style guide. 

Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) is the most comprehensive and up to date citation tool, it is listed with other resource below.

Ultimately, using the Cite (EBSCO), Save Citation (Scholars Portal E-Journals) is an excellent way of grabbing a citation in different styles. Unfortunately, Google Scholar, Web of Science Complete and Taylor and Francis Journals Online use citation management tools and don't offer a direct APA/MLA citation function.
