Citation Tools


Many library databases have a citation generator feature. Some will format a reference list from selected articles, others will format a single citation that you can copy and paste into your document.

Be aware that citation generators such as these, can often make mistakes in the retrieval statement. In the example below from a ProQuest database, the generator has used the URL from the browser window instead of the URL for the journal’s homepage, which is what APA requires if there is no DOI number.



Nova Southeastern University provides EndNote software to faculty, students, and staff of the university. Visit the NSU Libraries’ EndNote guide for more information and to download the software.

Other Programs

EndNote is just one citation and file managing program. Others include RefWorks, Zotero, and Mendeley. Whatever program or citation management method you use, make sure you’re comfortable with it and that it works for you.
