    What to do With the Full Text

    • Open the PDF Full Text file of the article you would like to use for your research

    • Once the PDF file is open, you will see the Tools menue pictured below on the right side of the screen.
    • You can:
      • print the entire article (printer icon)
      • email a copy of the article to yourself (envelope icon)
      • generate an approximate citation for the article (sheet of paper icon)

    • The citation tool will generate citations in a number of different styles
      • Choose the correct one for your class
      • compare it to a style guide or another authoritative example to make sure the citation is correct
      • If you don't have an APA Style Guide, try using the Purdue OWL.
