How to Use Quick Cite
Quick cite lets you copy and paste a pre-formatted source reference from a website or online database.
Copy the source reference into the Manually-edited citation text area provided. Follow the steps in the yellow box to review and make corrections where needed. Use the formatting Guide at the top of the page to help you.
Entering the publication or copyright date of the source will help sort the entry in relation to your other references. If you leave the field blank, NoodleTools still does its best to parse the date out of the reference you have pasted in.
When you save, the reference appears in the source list with a note, "This is a copy of a preformatted citation." This note does not appear when the bibliography is exported or printed.
