There are an infinite number ways of formatting a paper, and there are still a large number of paper formal styles. Most formatting styles handle citations within the text, endnotes/footnotes, and the works cited page. Some of the most notable styles include APA, Chicago and MLA.
For this class, you will only use APA style. The OWL at Purdue is an excellent resource for APA style.
Because of this, the guide focuses exclusively on APA. If you need to use another style for another class, the OWL at Purdue is also an excellent resource for Chicago and MLA styles.
There are programs that will help you keep track of your citations and format them appropriately for you.
Three of the top are Endnote, Refworks, and Zotero.
Endnote and Refworks are paid software that we use through a University Library license. Zotero is free software.
There is a libguide on navigating Refworks.
