How to Quickly Cite a Reference using Google Scholar

Google Scholar can facilitate citing a reference on-the-fly. Below each citation after running a search, there are a few links offering actions like exporting, saving, and more. If you don’t see a link called Cite, then click on the More option. This will display the Cite action where Google Scholar generates the reference in a few of the major citation styles. Among these styles are APA, Chicago, Vancouver, and MLA. See the screenshots below for examples of what this looks like and ask us if you have any questions. You can try out this example on your own using this link:
