STEPS FOR CITING YOUR SOURCES

Below are three steps for citing your sources in American Psychological Association (APA)  style. (Analogous steps hold for other styles as well.)

Proper citing of your sources can help you avoid plagiarism. Visit the Avoiding Plagiarism guide!

STEP 1

Use this citation generator to create citations in APA style:

Watch the .gif demo below, then watch the Youtube immediately below it. When using ZoteroBib, select the APA style.

STEP 2

When you write your paper, you will need not just a reference list, but also in-text references. These are citations within the text of the paper that point to the list of references at the end of your paper.

ZoteroBib allows for in-text citations. Below is a tutorial (Royal College of Nursing) about how this works. Make sure you have selected APA style!

 


STEP 3

Tools such as ZoteroBib help reduce the amount of typing you have to do, but may not always accurately render the style. Consult an APA citation style guide to check the results from ZoteroBib. See below. Contact the science librarian with any questions.
