Research Hack: When you find an article you think you might use, you’ll notice on the abstract page a series of menu items. If you click on the menu item entitled “Cite,” you’ll find a list of citations for the article in various citation styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.). Copy the citation in the style appropriate for your research paper. Start a new word document for your bibliography and paste the citation for each of your sources onto the document. When you’ve finished writing your paper, you’ll just need to alphabetize the list and correct the formatting and your bibliography will be complete!
