Citing online articles from EBSCO Host, etc.

Use online citation tools!
Citing online articles can be a little tricky.
Get some help from your online search system!
Here's how:

  1. Use automatically-generated citations: Article database systems like EBSCO Host generate sample citations for their articles.
  2. Check your automatic citations: Automatically-generated citations often contain errors. Be sure to check them for accuracy using either your student writer's handbook, or an online tool like Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL).
