Citation Style Guide
Citation Style Guides
There are many style guides available. When working on your bibliographies, follow your professor's, editor's, or journal's instructions first. If they have none, you can choose one of the styles below. ACS (American Chemical Society) and AIP (American Institute of Physics) have more technical examples and are used more in engineering than APA (American Psychological Asssociation), Chicago, MLA (Modern Languages Association), and Turabian. One of the best online sites for basic citiation style in ALA or MLA formats is run by Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL). This LibGuide can help you choose the best citation manager for your science paper.
