Cite It In - A Free Tool for Creating Reference Citations

Cite It In is another in a long list of tools that are designed to help students properly format research citations. Cite It In provides students with templates for creating inline and bibliography citations in APA, MLA, and Chicago style. Cite It In works the same way regardless of the citation style that students choose.

To use Cite It In students simply go to the site, pick a style, and fill in the information requested in the template. Once the template is completed, students click "generate citation" and a citation is created for them to copy and paste into their documents.

Applications for Education
Cite It In isn't as slick as some of the other citation generators on the web, but it is simple and easy to use. One drawback to it is that students will have to do a lot of copying and pasting if they have a lot of references to cite.
