Is there a way to plug in the information and it creates the report?


Stephen February 10, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Hi Abbe,

Those free generators above will do just that, have you tried them yet?

I use easybib. It is really nice. Just keep in mind that most schools don’t let you use Wiki as a source.

Nice. Thank you so much! You really helped me out! Out of all of them, I like KnightCite the most. I haven’t lost any marks for incorrectly citing sources since I started using it. 🙂

These are excellent resources. I appreciate how they lay out each area of the specific paper topics; works cited page, table of contents, etc.

Here are two other resources… favorite….Noodle, which really is a free resource to help you cite MLA content and then a resource our Professor shared Purdue Owl.
