Introduction to Citations

Need to create citations in you paper, but not sure what to do?  We're here to help!

First, choose a citation style.*  Be consistent by using the same style throughout your paper.

  • APA (American Psychological Association) style is commonly used for Education, Psychology, and the Sciences.
  • MLA (Modern Language Association) style is commonly used for the Humanities.
  • Chicago/Turabian is commonly used for Business, History, and the Fine Arts.

*Be sure to check with your professor for their recommended citation style.

Check out the APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian tabs at the top for more help.
