APA Style Tutorials

Citation Styles
Each area of study requires that papers follow a particular style. The most well-known citation styles include: MLA (Modern Language Association), APA (American Psychological Association), ASA (American Sociological Association), and Chicago or Turabian. Your professor will tell you what style he or she prefers for your papers. The most recent style manual editions are on the shelf in the library. Listed below are some good online sources, but you should always double check the book version of the manuals and triple check with your professors before submitting a final copy of your paper.
