In the library databases, you can find the citation information for an article on the article record page.
In some databases, you click on the Abstract/Details link in the results list.
In some databases, you click the article title in the results list.
The article record will include the author names, article title, journal name, volume, issue number, page range, and DOI (if available). The article record should includes the abstract for the article, if one is available.
To download the citation and abstract, highlight the citation and abstract and copy/paste them into a Word (or other word processing program) document. In some databases you can save or email the citation and abstract. Look around for different options. Each database will look a little different.
