MS Word has a built in citation generator that handles several citation styles.
Click on References, the select the appropriate Style:, then click on Insert Citation.
WARNING! - Just as with other computer-generated citations, you should always check and correct your results - particularly for online resources.

DOIs are unique codes that identify an electronic document, much like a social security number identifies a person. Additionally, DOIs can be used to find the document on the internet - usually at the publisher's web site.
For more information on DOIs, check out our DOI page.
