Citing Sources: Other Styles

A guide to citing sources designed and created by Clark Librarians

When Should I Cite?

Any time your work contains or refers to someone else's ideas, words, images, media, or sounds you need to include a citation.

1. In-text citations should be inserted at the point of use in your assignment and indicate that the information you just presented came from a source other than your own brain or common knowledge.

2. A Works Cited or References section should be included at the end of your assignment.

3. In Works Cited / References, list all the works you referred to with in-text citations in the body of your assignment.

4. There are many citation styles, each with it's own precise formatting. The most popular at Clark are MLA and APA.

Chicago Style (Humanities)

CSE Style (Science & Biology)
