  • Citations Style Guide: START HERE

    Everything you will need to write citations properly.

    Welcome to the citations style guide!

    Citations are formal statements describing where you received your information from. Citations do two things:

    1. They give credit to the person, group of people, or organization who created that information; and
    2. They display your academic and research integrity to respecting others' work.

    Components of citations include, but are not limited to:

    • Article / Book / Chapter Title
    • Author(s)
    • Editor(s)
    • Publication Date
    • Journal / Book name
    • Journal / Book volume number
    • Book edition
    • Journal issue number
    • Page number(s)
    • Website link [This includes DOIs]
    • Access Date

    Not every citation will include every component. It depends on the resource you obtained information from. For example, a physical book will not have a URL, but an eBook will.

    *Have more questions about what a citation is?* Check out this webpage from Infobase titled "Citing Sources" that answers common questions regarding citations.
