An Important Warning About Citation Tools

Although the Zotero resources mentioned on this page are some of the most reliable tools available for generating APA-style citations, it is important to remember that no citation software or tool is perfect. They will occasionally make mistakes, which is why whenever you use any kind of tool to generate citations, you always need to check them over to make sure that they are correct. If you do not remember to double-check your citations, then you risk accidental plagiarism through incorrect citing.
