Using Style Guides

To avoid plagiarism, you must cite any information and ideas that are not your own. Style guides provide examples of the correct format for creating citations along with general information on writing research papers. There are many different style guides in existence, developed for use with specific subjects such as the humanities, social sciences, medicine, law, chemistry, and the sciences. Before beginning your paper, you should ask your instructor which style should be used for your paper.

Citation Generators

The links below are to citation generators. These are sites that allow you to add citation information to a form and submit it, and then receive a properly formatted citation in the style of your choosing. They work for APA, MLA, and other major citation styles.

NOTE: Be sure to check the references generated by these tools against a style manual or other credible source.
