- Each style has its own rules regarding what you should include in a citation and how to format it.
- The most common styles are MLA, APA and Chicago.
- Which style you should use depends on various factors such as the subject area of your course or your teacher’s preference.
- Be sure to check your assignment for the correct style before you start formatting your paper and citing your sources.
