CITATIONS

As you conduct research on your topic, be sure to make note of the sources you encounter, because most professors will expect you to cite the sources that you use.

By citing sources correctly, you allow readers to locate and further explore the sources you consulted, demonstrate the depth and scope of your research, give credit to others for their ideas, and avoid committing plagiarism.  For more information, see the Rosen Research Guide on Avoiding Plagiarism.

Rosie There are dozens of different citation style manuals, all with different purposes and audiences.  Always check your syllabus, or check with your professor directly, to find out if you are required to use a particular citation style.
 

At the Rosen College, most professors will ask you to cite your sources in one of the following major styles:

APA Style

For more assistance with APA Style, including examples of citations and references, see the Rosen Research Guide on APA Citation Style.

MLA Style

Currently in its 7th edition (2009), the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers is the official source for what is commonly known as "MLA Style."  The book is located in the Rosen Library reference collection at: LB2369 .G53 2009. For more assistance with MLA Style, including examples of citations and references, see the Rosen Research Guide on MLA Citation Style.

Chicago Style

Currently in its 16th edition (2010), the Chicago Manual of Style is the official source for what is commonly known as "Chicago Style."  The book is located in the Rosen Library reference collection at: REF Z253 .U69 2010.
