Last Updated: Apr 25, 2019 Views: Views: 105

Citations are documented sources for the information included in a report (essay, presentation, etc.). Author, title, publisher, year of publication, and format are major parts of a citation. There are many different formats for creating citations so make sure you are using the correct form!

Popular citation formats include:

  • American Psychological Association (APA)
  • Modern Language Association (MLA)
  • Chicago Manual of Style

If you need additional help, you may consult the APA Style Library Guide or the MLA Style Library Guide. You may also follow our APA citation tutorial or our MLA citation tutorial.
