Guides to Citing

For examples and help, see the Purdue Online Writing Lab -- Research & Citation Resource

Emory library also provides a guide to citation: https://guides.main.library.emory.edu/citing_your_sources

If you are not sure which citation style to use, this guide has helpful advice structured by discipline. You may also want to check with the intended recipient of your work to see if they have specific style requirements.

MLA

 Modern Language Association (MLA) style is preferred but ANY style is OK, as long as you are consistent.

 

  • You can copy and paste a reference cited in MLA style directly from many of the library databases and from Google Scholar (to cite from Google Scholar, click on the quotation mark underneath the reference).
  • You can also use a citation manager software, like Zotero or EndNote.

Avoid Plagiarism

Using the work of another scholar without proper citation, whether that work is available in print or online, is plagiarism, a violation of the Emory Honor Code. See the Citing your Sources guide for more information.

Zotero

Zotero helps you collect, manage, and cite research sources. Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies using Word or Open Office.

EndNote

End​Note is a program that makes it possible to collect and organize references in a database and instantly create properly formatted bibliographies.
