How to create citations
When viewing an item
When viewing a single item, you can create a citation from the item page by clicking the Cite button above the item viewer.
Then use the Copy button(s) to copy your desired citation format. Or use one of the export links to export your citation as a plain text (.txt) file, RIS file, or to your citation management service of choice.
From your search results
When searching on JSTOR, you can also create one or more citations directly from the search results page.
To cite a single item, click the Cite button next to the item. For images, this is under a drop-down menu which you can open by clicking the three vertical dots next to the image thumbnail.
To export citations for multiple items in bulk:
- Select the check boxes next to the items you'd like to cite.
- You can select images, text items, or a combination of both.
- Your selections will be saved even if you go to the next page of results.
- The number of items you can export citations for at one time will depend on the export option you choose:
- NoodleTools: 200 items
- RefWorks: 400 items
- EasyBib: 100 items
- RIS file: 400 items
- Text file: 400 items
- Once you've finished selecting your items, click the Cite button at the top of the search results page to export your citation as a plain text (.txt) file, RIS file, or to your citation management service of choice.
