Citation help from EBSCO: Click article title

EBSCO databases (Medline, CINAHL, and Academic Search Premier) include a Cite feature that formats your citations for you. This saves you time but always check these in a citation guide and correct any formatting errors.

1. Search an EBSCO database.

2. Click the title of an article you want to cite. 

3. Click the Cite icon on the right. 

4. Scroll down & find the formatted citation labelled Vancouver/ICMJE (or whichever citation style you're required to use).

5. Copy & paste into your assignment. Check the Vancouver style guide and fix/repair the citation as needed.

Note: Copy & paste the citation into Notepad first, then copy that & put into Word, if it keeps the background colour from EBSCO.
