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:
- Go to EBSCO and type in the title of your article.
- Find it on the result list and click on it.
- 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:
- Go to WorldCat and search for your book.
- From the results list, click on the title.
- Once on the item page, select Cite/Export.
- A pop-up window will launch with APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA and Turabian style citations.
- Click on your style to get the citation.
- 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:
- Go to Son of Citation Machine.
- Choose the citation style you want.
- Click on Journal.
- Type the citation info you have into the form to create your new citation.
