Choosing A Style
There are different ways to properly cite resources in your paper. The citation style usually depends on the academic discipline involved. For example:
MLA style (Modern Language Association) is typically used by the Humanities
APA style (American Psychological Association) often is used by Education, Psychology, and Business
When determining which style to use there are several resources to keep in mind:
Ask your professor which style they prefer for the course.
Consult a style guide for examples of using various citation styles to create in-text citations, bibliographies and reference lists, or use citation software to assist you in tracking sources used and building in-text citations and bibliographies.
Bottom line: Check with your professor to make sure you use the style required for that class. And whatever style you choose, BE CONSISTENT!
