Citation Styles

Which citation style guide you use will depend on the following:

  1. Instructor - check your assignment guidelines or ask your instructor if he/she has a preference/recommendation
  2. Field of Study - certain citation styles are used for certain disciplines.
  3. Writing for Publication - check the guidelines in the publication (journal) to whom you would like to submit your article.

Tip: If You Quote It, Note It

Remember to always properly document the sources you have used to write your essay; failure to do so can result in academic penalties.  For further information see Section VII - Academic Regulations and Policies in the Course Calendar.
