MLA Notes

For articles, be sure to enter the database you found your article in the Archive field - it will then be included in the correct place in your bibliography.

APA Notes

If your article citation does not present in sentence case, you can right-click on the title in your Zotero library and change it in the library from title case to sentence case (you will need to manually capitalize the first letter of any proper nouns as per APA style).
