    When you have clicked on the newspaper article that you want to cite you will see at the top of the Electronically Translated Text area (on the left of screen) six blue buttons in a row. The fifth one is Cite. Click on that and you will see a variety of citation formations to choose from.

    G'day Infotech,

    How exactly to cite a reference all depends on which of the several 'standards' you wish to use, or are required to use for a particular publication/organisation.

    The easy way to obtain a citation is to use the "Cite" button available in Trove. When you are viewing an article, or even a page of articles, you will see a "Cite" button at the top of the column on the left.

    When you click this button you will get a floating window with various versions of a citation to that particular article, each of which conform to some of the common citation standards. You can copy and paste the one you want and do with it as you please.

    In addition to the citations there is also an "Article identifier" link that provides a permanent weblink to that article, which you can also copy and insert wherever you like. As well as that at the bottom there are 'Endnote' and 'BibTex' downloads that provide citations that will work with these two examples of bibliographic software.


    Spoilt for choice !?!
