Citation Assistance

There are several types of citation styles. Which one you use will likely depend on what discipline you’re writing for. If you are writing for the Humanities, you might use MLA (Modern Language Association) citation style. If you’re writing for the sciences you may use AIP (American Institute of Physics). Below is a list of common citation styles, if you are unsure which style you should be using to cite your sources speak with a professor or contact a reference librarian.
