Alternative Citation Tools to Consider

There are several options on the Internet, as well as the features of your Word processor and Google Scholar.

If you are generating your own citations by hand, I recommend consulting the Perdue University Online Writing Laboratory, which includes a downloadable sample paper in APA format.

Otherwise, I would like to suggest exploring Zotero or Mendeley, both of which provide graduate students the chance to join a community of scholars and the ability to share and collaborate.
