What's a citation?

This diagram helps point out the elements of a citation for a journal article.  The citation helps other readers find the information you used to research your paper, and verifies the quality of information in your own work.  A citation list also helps give credit to the writers and researchers whose work came before your own. 



Many of our periodical databases will create citations for you.  Just look for the icon to customize a citation in your chosen format (MLA, APA, etc), then copy the citation into your own word document or saved file.  Keep all your citations in one place so writing your bibliography is easier.
