Easy Cite referencing tool
Describes how to quote and paraphrase the words of other authors, and write citations in Harvard, APA, AGLC4, Vancouver, IEEE, and Chicago referencing styles.
Are you using the APA referencing style?
The APA referencing style has been updated to the 7th edition. It was a significant update, so make sure your references follow the new guidelines.
Using Easy Cite
Easy Cite was developed using the relevant style manuals. Some styles are open to interpretation. Easy Cite is intended as a guide only.
The Library includes as many examples of reference types as possible. If the style does not include your specific reference example, consider applying the format from existing examples within Easy Cite to your reference or checking the relevant style manual.
If you are looking for guides to other referencing styles, or if you'd prefer to work with a printed guide, we have printable referencing guides.
The Easy Cite referencing tool is inaccessible to keyboard users and some assistive technologies. You can navigate it on touch screen devices. Check the printable referencing guides for more accessible alternatives.
