Citation Styles

When writing a paper it is important to choose and follow a citation style. If you do not cite the information in your paper gathered from other sources you are guilty of plaigarism. Following a specific style insures that all necessary information is presented in a consistent and clear manner for others to follow. Many of these exist but this guide will only cover the three most common:




The APA style is commonly used in the social sciences, MLA in liberal arts and humanities, and Chicago actually had different formats one that is used by humanities and one that is used by sciences. People writing in Theology often use the Chicago method but you should always check with your professor (or journal editor) to see if they have a certain method they want you to use.

This guide is a brief overview of how to use these style guides. For more indepth information and special situations please consult the print manuals or one of the listed online resources.
