How do I cite this in a bibliography?


The citation information found at the bottom of entries is intended to serve as an aid to writing a works cited list, bibliography, or list of references. How you cite a work in a paper depends on the style you use. Below you will find examples of the most common citation styles.

 

Modern Language Association (MLA) Style


The Modern Language Association (MLA) was founded in 1883 as an organization devoted to furthering the study and teaching of language and literature. MLA style is widely used by high schools, colleges, and publishing houses.
The following is what our editors have determined to be the MLA works cited format appropriate for this online magazine, based on the 8th edition. We suggest that you consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers or talk to your librarian for more information on writing your works cited list.

American Psychological Association (APA) Style


American Psychological Association (APA) style is based on a 1928 meeting of editors of anthropological and psychological journals to determine best practices for the production of journal manuscripts. APA style is largely used by those writing and publishing in the behavioral and social sciences.

When you use the citation in your bibliography, APA requires that you indent the turnover lines.

The Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) was first published in 1906 by the University of Chicago Press. During its more than 100 years of existence, the manual has evolved into an authoritative voice for authors, editors, proofreaders, indexers, copywriters, designers, and publishers.
