What citation style do I use?
If you aren't sure which citation style you should use for an assignment, check your syllabus or any handouts given to you by your professor with instructions for the assignment. If it is not listed, you should contact your professor. You can also check the tabs at the top of this page to see the various citation styles used on campus. The field associated with that style is listed there.
