Citation Style Guides


The MLA style guide is one of the most well known and used style guides and tends to be used across subjects but especially in English.


The APA style guide was developed by the American Psychological Association and is primarily used in the field of psychology, although many other professional fields have adopted the APA style.

Chicago & Turabian

The Turabian style is an easier version of the Chicago style guide.  In these styles citations are made at the bottom of the page instead of on a works cited page at the end of the paper.
