As a general rule, you should use the version of a publication in CentAUR only as a preview. You should cite the published version wherever possible. The final published version can be accessed by following the DOI or URL links in the CentAUR record.
You will need to cite the CentAUR version (rather than the published version) only if:
For examples of in-text citations and bibliography listings for items in CentAUR see our Citing from CentAUR guide.
Always follow the usual referencing style for your discipline or intended publication. For further guidance see our Citing References LibGuide.
Wherever possible, include the publisher DOI in your tweet or mention. This ensures that tools, such as Altmetric, which track social media mentions will count it.
Include the CentAUR URL if the item is behind a paywall or does not have a DOI, incuding for accepted manuscripts where a DOI has not yet been assigned by the publisher.
