Citation Formats

Different citation formats are used by different academic disciplines.  Professors will often require a particular format, but if they have no preference these guidelines may be helpful:

  • APA - psychology, education, and other social sciences
  • MLA - literature, arts, and humanities
  • Turabian - designed for college students to use with all subjects
  • Chicago - used with all subjects in the "real world" by books, magazines, newspapers and other non-scholarly publications
