Nursing Research Guide

A One-Stop Resource for Research Assistance

There are a variety of APA resources available for use out there, but several that we recommend in particular are:

  • Many students and faculty also choose to download and use the resource management and citation tool Zotero to not only store and organize their articles, but also to assist with in-text citations and reference lists. Zotero is free to install and use, and you can learn more about it by going to the library's extensive Zotero Guide
  • If you don't want to install anything on your computer and would just like a reliable tool, you can use Zotero's free online citation generation tool ZoteroBib, which can be found online at
  • Keep in mind that whenever you use Zotero, or any citation generator tool, you always need to double-check to make sure that your citations are correct. While some citation tools such as Zotero and software are objectively better than others, none are perfect and all will make mistakes of some sort. It will be up to you to use quality resources like the ones linked above to watch for and correct any errors.
