This guide will discuss the UpToDate database and how UNF students and faculty may utilize it.

Recommendation by UpToDate

UptoDate recommends that you cite the UpToDate topic as a chapter in a book titled UpToDate. There are no page numbers to cite, and the publication year for any topic should be the current year.

The example below is provided by UpToDate:

How to cite an UpToDate® topic:

Marion, DW. Diaphragmatic pacing. In: UpToDate, Post TW (Ed), UpToDate, Waltham, MA. (Accessed on November 25, 2013.)

Of course, this citation is just an example and may not be exactly what you need to cite given the style chosen by your instructor. Please visit our Citation Styles Research Guide for more information.

UpToDate and RefWorks

RefWorks is partially compatible with UpToDate. You will have to manually enter in citation data (see image below).
