Academic subject areas all use different style guides to format papers, references, and citation of sources. Rather than trying to explain formatting for all possible style guides, this LibGuide offers links to websites that have much more experience helping writers in these areas. The following boxes will direct you to resources for APA, MLA, and Chicago style, the three most common styles used for academic papers. Use the resources for the style guide specified by your instructor.
