Use this guide to get started on your research for your ENG 201

Citation Styles

Different academic disciplines use different citation styles. 

APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences including business, education, nursing, and psychology, among other disciplines.

MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities, including literature, arts, history and other disciplines.

ASA (American Sociological Association) style is used in many sociology courses. 

For help with these citation styles and more, we recommend the Purdue Writing Owl (Purdue OWL).
