Citation Styles

Citation styles are defined ways of formatting and organizing your references. Always ask your instructor if you are not sure about what style to use for your assignment. 

Modern Language Format (MLA) is used by humanities, literature, and art fields. 

American Psychological Association (APA) is used by social sciences.
