You can still use some kind of citation generator, but why should you do this, when you have such a functionality in Google Scholar?
It gets even worse if you are at the end of a big project and realize you haven’t even begun to organize or cite your sources.
Fortunately, Google Scholar has largely automated this process.
These are clickable links you can use to breadcrumb backwards into other articles and content that have cited that source.
This is a useful way to identify how others are using a research source.
You can limit results to a specific time period, for example.
Another option is to search according to the author.
This will then generate the proper citation which you can copy onto your document as needed.
If you use this feature along with the ability to create and search libraries, you can easily track down all sources for a particular project and grab the citations that you need.
As you might expect, this pulls up additional scholarly resources that relate to the search result you selected.
This is great if you are low on sources for your research.
