Citations, Plagiarism, and Intellectual Property: Citation Generators

Database Citation Generators

Library databases will provide citations for the articles provided.  Each database works differently, so you will need to look for the tool that creates the citation.  Usually this is indicated by the word "cite" or "citation".  Always check the citation generated by the database against the proper citation manual or your textbook. Some APA citations in EBSCOhost use incorrect capitalization.

Below is an example from EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete.

Look for the "golden ticket" cite icon in the right tool bar.

Title Page Generators

MLA does not require a title page; instead, include your name and course information flush with the left margin at the top of the first manuscript page, and the title below that, centered on the page.

Citation Management Tools

Citation management tools enable researchers to capture information about research materials, create bibliographies, add footnotes, and manage research collections.  Some citation management tools also make it easy to share references with other researchers.


Zotero is a free tool that will help you collect, organize and manage citations.
