This guide will help you find information, tools and resources on citation and style.

Welcome!

This guide will help you find information, tools and resources on citation and style.

Which Citation Style Should I Use?

  • A style guide or style manual is a set of standards for the writing and design of documents, either for general use or for a specific publication, organization or field.
  • A style guide provides uniformity in style and formatting within a document and across multiple documents.
  • Your professor will tell you which citation style to use for your paper or thesis. If not, the following list provides a general guide:
    • APA: Psychology, Education
    • ASA: Sociology
    • CBE/CSE: Biology, Natural Sciences
    • Chicago/Turabian: History, Art History, Political Science
    • MLA: English, Humanities
  • How are citation styles different? See a comparison of APA, MLA, and Chicago style from Purdue's OWL (Online Writing Lab).
