How To Cite a Source

A citation tool opens up. Search for the paper by author name, title, keyword, and/or year of publication in one of our databases. When you find it, cite it and this will create a citation in your text such as \ cite{Einstein1905} , which will render into a citation like (Einstein 1905) and a reference (see below) upon saving.
