Cite Your Sources

Since your field has not adopted one specific citation style, you'll need to ask your professor how to cite your reference. If you're given the option to use any existing style, use the resources below. If you create your own style, you'll need to be consistent about how you cite them and include any information your readers might need to track down your sources.
