Research & Citation: Where to Find a
Style Guide Online for Every Known Format

"Citation is a beast to master." ~Professor Marsha

It is! And FEW, if ANYONE can actually recite from memory, all of the circumstances involved with accurate citation (and please do not let anyone tell you otherwise). The formats change as quickly as media changes. The BEST way to guarantee accuracy is to invest in the publication manual needed for your program.

If you are unsure of the format needed, here is a great list from Purdue University OWL of Core Disciplines and their corresponding citation formats. ALWAYS be certain you have the information necessary for success in your own program. If you are unsure, do not be afraid to ask your instructor.
