Zotero Bib

ZoteroBib is a free tool for automatically generating citations in many different citation styles (including APA, MLA, Chicago, CSE, and many more). While ZoteroBib's interpreter for creating automatically generated citations is more accurate than other tools (such as EasyBib), always check your citations against the CMOS guide in Purdue Owl or the actual Chicago Manual of Style to ensure their accuracy.
