Style Guides

Style guides provide information on writing and publication in various disciplines, including formatting manuscripts and cite sources. For example, the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, often referred to as APA style, covers writing for the behavioral and social sciences, manuscript structure, style mechanics, how to display results and credit and reference sources, details of the publication process, and more.

Use the tabs above for information on the AP, APA, ASA, Chicago/Turabian, MLA, and science citation styles and information on citing government information.
