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 can be subject to mistakes.
  • If using one, check the citations with the APA Help guide.
