No, you should always double check them using our citation research guides.  EBSCO databases even have a warning above the citations provided:

Pay special attention to personal names, capitalization, and dates. Always consult your library resources for the exact formatting and punctuation guidelines.

Since these citations are machine-generated there are often typos and mistakes.  One of the most common mistakes you will see is that the article title will be in all capital letters.  That is always wrong! 

For further help please contact the Wolak Learning Center at 603.645.9606 (Campus Students) and Online Writing Center at 866.721.1662 (Online Students) for assistance with citing sources.

This information is intended to be a guideline, not expert advice. Please be sure to speak to your professor about the appropriate way to cite sources in your class assignments and projects.
