Q. What is a citation tool and what is it used for?


A citation tool is an automated citation generator.

  • There are websites which generate references and in-text citations from information that you enter.
  • Microsoft Word has a citation generator.
  • Citation generators are simply computer programs and can be subject to mistakes.
  • If you choose to use a citation generator, it is best to check your citations against the offical Baker citation style, APA 6th edition.
  • You can use the APA Help guide to assist you.
