CiteFast Citation Generator: The first tool we explore is CiteFast. On the CiteFast dashboard, users can find various citation styles, including APA 7, APA 6, MLA 8, and Chicago.

  • The Chicago citation is generated automatically, including details like publication date, article title, journal title, volume, issue, and page numbers.

  • Users can save or export the citation for future use.

  1. APA 7 Style Citation:

  • Using the same title, the APA 7 style citation is generated.

  • Users can save or export the citation as a Word document.

QuillBot Citation Generator: Moving on to QuillBot, which is known for paraphrasing, it also offers a free citation generator.

  1. Journal Article Citation:
