Download Your Articles with Pre-formatted APA Citations

When you've found an article you would like to use in your Research Project, ALWAYS save the article by downloading it from the database - even if you print a copy out, you should save a backup copy.

This way you will be able to copy and paste source material directly into your research paper (with proper in-text citations, of course!), and you will also have all of your citation information available to copy and paste into your References page. 

  • Copy the Article Title and Paste it Into the Subject Field - See the example below. This will eliminate confusion when you scroll through your Inbox, and allow you to find articles you sent to yourself easily.
  • Under Citation Format, Select APA 7 (American Psychological Association) - The article will arrive in your Inbox with a pre-formatted APA-style citation, which you can copy and paste directly into your References page for APA Research Paper.
  • Select the HTML Full Text or PDF Download Option
