BIO 101: Prof. Tuaillon's Classes: Citation Help

APA Citation Help

When citing articles, use APA (American Psychological Association) format. Here are some links to help you.

Librarians will help you with your citations. Go to the Information Commons Help Desks or use the "Ask a Librarian" links.

Formats may be found in the APA Style manual or at the websites below.

Citations from the Databases

Most of the databases now provide citations for articles. You must locate the tools box and look for the link to cite or citation tools.

This is the tool box for all EBSCO databases such as Academic Search Complete and Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection. Once you click on the Cite link, you will be given all possible citation formats for the article. Copy and paste the citation into your works cited page. Be sure to check that titles are capitalized and formats are correct.

                                                                                     

 If you are using a database such as Newsday or Historical New York Times, click on the cite link in the tool menu above the article.
