Citing Your Sources

A variety of styles are available for creating references to cited literature, both in-text references and full citations in the bibliography or list of references at the end of a paper.

Select the style that matches the general discipline:

APA -- social sciences, psychology

MLA -- humanities, arts

Chicago/Turabian -- multidisciplinary

CSE -- science and medicine

Other styles -- anthropology, government publications

Remember, any time you use an author's ideas, you will need to cite the source to give them credit. Not sure when to cite? This short guide will help.
