Answer

There is no program that automatically converts citation from one format to another, but there are some easy ways to get citations for articles and books:

If you have an article and it is available from EBSCO you can grab the citation in multiple citation styles:

  1. Go to EBSCO and type in the title of your article.
  2. Find it on the result list and click on it.
  3. Click on the Cite icon and copy the citation style you want into your paper. Make sure to double space with a hanging indent.

If you have a book, you can get a cititon in muliple formats from Worldcat:

  1. Go to WorldCat and search for your book.
  2. From the results list, click on the title.
  3. Once on the item page, select Cite/Export.
  4. A pop-up window will launch with APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA and Turabian style citations. 
  5. Click on your style to get the citation. 
  6. Make sure to double space with a hanging indent.

If your article is not available in EBSCO or you don't have access to EBSCO, Son of Citation Machine can save you some time:

  1. Go to Son of Citation Machine.
  2. Choose the citation style you want.
  3. Click on Journal.
  4. Type the citation info you have into the form to create your new citation.
