Frequently Asked Questions about our bibliographic format converter

What is a PubMed ID?
PubMed is one of the most popular databases among life science researchers and doctors. All records in PubMed are assigned a PubMed ID (or PMID), which is a unique identification number located at the bottom left of a PubMed record.
What is a reference list in APA style?
The American Psychological Association recommends that you cite any works or individuals whose ideas, theories, or research have directly influenced your work. This means crediting them in-text with a short citation in the author-date format, e.g. (Hattie, 2008), and a full entry in the reference list. The entry in the reference list contains the author, year, title and source of the cited work. The APA style also mandates the formatting and structure of a paper. All the rules of the APA style can be found in the APA Manual, which is currently in its 7th edition.
