Citation Resources

We recommend RefWorks, which is a professional citation manager. Set up your personal account and begin exporting article records from our databases into your RefWorks account. You can manage all your citations within RefWorks and create bibliographies using over 2,000 citation styles. Produce your bibliography in MS Word.

RefWorks is easy and accurate, but we always suggest that you check citations against the style manual, to be sure.
