Zotero Citation Manager: Create Reference Lists & In-Text Citations

Always double-check your reference list

Zotero lets you make APA style reference lists quickly. 

Information in the databases is not guaranteed to be correct APA formatting. This means the information in your Zotero library may not be correct either.

You are still responsible for making sure that the reference list created by Zotero meets APA style requirements and is free of errors.

For more information on APA formatting, you can contact the Writing Center or look at their APA reference list for common examples.
