EBSCO Cite Feature

On EBSCO interfaces, when you are viewing an article detail, you can see how the citation for that article should be formatted in a variety of popular citation formats, including APA, MLA, etc.

There are many styles and forms used to cite the sources supporting your research. When using the EBSCO citation tool, please make any necessary corrections before using the citations. Data used to cite electronic sources is not yet standardized; therefore, researchers should review citations carefully. Pay special attention to personal names, capitalization, and dates. Double check your library resources for the exact formatting and punctuation guidelines.

To view citation formats for an article:

  1. Run a search on EBSCO and view a search result.

  2. From the Detailed Record, click the Cite icon.


  3. When you have decided which citation format you want for the article, copy and paste the citation directly into the Works Cited or References page of a document created in a word processing program such as Word.
