The databases have a built-in citation generator! View the full article description by clicking on the title of the article in your results list. Then use the citation tools on the right-hand side of the page:

  • Cite will display the article's citation in a variety of different citation formats. Scroll down a bit to see the APA citation (6th edition).
  • Email opens a form where you can enter your own email address. Use the drop-down menu on the form to select APA.

Remember: Online citation generators aren't perfect! They make formatting citations easier than starting from scratch. But you should ALWAYS check the citation and correct any errors. YOU are ultimately responsible for your citations!
