Citation Styles & Format

Traditional & Online Materials

Journals, professors, and disciplines often have their own methods for formatting citations. The American Institute of Physics provides a manual of style published in 1990. The American Mathematical Society's recent style manual can be found in PDF form here. Other citation styles include the Chicago Manual of StylePublication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), and the Modern Language Association (MLA) style. For help with Chicago, APA, and MLA citation styles, look at our How-To Guides for Writing & Documentation and Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL).


Data Citation

There is no one standard for data citation. Generally, when using a data source, see if there is a standard data use policy that provides guidance on citation practices (i.e., grant references, format, authorship). If no citation policy can be found, please familiarize yourself with common data citation practices as detailed in this guide from DataOne.
