Citing Sources: Styles for Specific Subject Areas

The most common citation style guidelines are the MLA (Modern Languages Association), APA (American Psychological Association), Chicago, and Turabian styles.  However, these are only four of many many different styles used to give credit to information resources.

The following resources may also be of assistance when using citation guidelines other than the four listed above:

ACS Style Guide  
(American Chemical Society, from Penn State)

AIP Style Sheet  
(American Institute of Physics)

APSA Style Guide  
(American Political Science Association, from U-W Madison Writing Center)

CBE Style Guide  
(Council of Biology Editors, from Monroe College)

GSA Style Sheet     
(Geological Society of America)

Legal Citation          
(based on the most recent edition of the Bluebook)

Notes Style Sheet    
(Music Library Association of America)

You may first want to try the library's web-based bibliographic manager, RefWorks.  RefWorks can take a citation and format it into any of a large number of different styles.  Ask at the library's Help Desk in the Information Commons if you need assistance with RefWorks.
