Citation Formats and Style Manuals

This is a brief guide to preparing research papers in a particular field of study, especially how to cite the books, journal articles, etc. that you used in your research. It is important that you give complete information about the source in question so that the reader of your paper can find it. Instructors will generally tell you which citation style to use in your research paper.
