NEW! Cite This Feature Available in Data Planet

You asked for it and we listened! You may have noticed a NEW “Cite This” quotation marks icon, circled in red below, in the center tool bar of the Data Planet interface:


In addition to exports to reference managers, available options now include formatted citations for these style guides:

  • DataCite 
  • APA (6th edition)
  • Chicago (17th edition)
  • MLA (8th edition)

Click on the quotation marks icon and select your preferred format. A dialog box will open with the formatted citation. “Copy to Clipboard” and then paste into your own document. Simple as that!



As with all electronic reference management tools, do note that the final responsibility for the citation is yours - as the author of the paper - so be sure to review the citation created against the source style guide and/or consult faculty.
