Choosing a Citation Style

Check with your professor/advisor to find out which citation style is preferred for your research. Commonly-used styles include:

  • APA
  • MLA
  • Chicago

When citing your research:

  • use a clear format;
  • be consistent;
  • provide enough information to allow others to identify and find the cited work.

Some databases can generate citations for users after they select a preferred citation style. If you are using one of these databases, be aware that they do not always produce correctly formatted citations. You will have to double-check the citations to make sure they are formatted properly.
