Citation Help in OVID

Wolters-Kluwer, OVID Print Citation box
Like most databases, OVID helps you format citations for bibliographies.

First select the articles you want to cite; then, use the Print command to activate the box shown on the left.

Notice that there are several display options. If you simply want a citation, choose the first one, Citation (Title, Author, Source). Then select the citation style: the basics--AMA, APA, Chicago, MLA--are covered.

The Print Preview will generate a page of the citations in the style you selected. These can be cut/pasted and edited, if needed, into a reference list.

The E-Mail command offers similar options.
