Need to cite in a hurry?
These quick citation builders create formatted citations from the source information (e.g. author, title, year published).
Important caveat: It's essential to proofread your citations before submitting them to your professor. Citation builders are time-savers, but they frequently add stray punctuation marks and create other errors.
AAA Style requires indenting each reference after the first line. Having trouble getting that to work? Here are a few links that can help.
The most commonly used publication styles are created by the Modern Languages Association, the American Psychological Association, and the University of Chicago.
- APA: Style set by the American Pyschological Association. (Commonly used in Social Science.)
- Chicago: Style set by University of Chicago. (Commonly used in Humanities.)
- MLA: Style of the Modern Language Association. (Commonly used in Languages and Literatures.)
(No matter what style your professor requests, a citation manager can help you organize and cite your sources, and so can a librarian.)
