With the newest replace to Google Docs now you can create MLA, APA, and Chicago fashion citations instantly in Google Docs with out the necessity for a third-party add-on. You may discover the brand new quotation function within the instruments drop-down menu in Google Docs.
Within the following video I display how you can create citations and bibliographies in Google Docs. One of many points of the brand new software that I like is that it walks college students via the place to place every bit of required data.
Each time I’ve shared bibliography instruments like this prior to now I’ve acquired emails from people who suppose that college students ought to discover ways to make bibliographies with out the assistance of an add-on.

Utilizing a template offered by Google Docs isn’t a lot completely different than that.
