Cognitive Science Research Guide: Citation Generators

Citation generators are tools that can create citations for you in any style based on the individual information you enter for your source.


As with any tool like these, is it not guaranteed to be accurate all of the time.  To be certain everything is perfect, consult the offical style manuals. 

Other ways to get formatted citations:

  • UC-eLinks.  Available in all of our databases (and Google Scholar if you set up preferences) is the built-in citation tool in UC-eLinks, Copy & Paste Citation (see screen shot below).   Choose from one of 5 bibliographic styles then copy & paste the text into a document.

  • Cite link.  Many databases (Academic Search Complete is one) have a Cite link that will display an article's citation in one of many citation styles.  Look for it when viewing the details about an article.
