APA and MLA Resources

Purdue’s Online Writing Lab (OWL) provides resources for implementing guidelines from the most current edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. OWL presents guidelines in easy-to-reference format with examples of APA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and reference pages. OWL also provides an online MLA reference for the formatting guidelines published by the Modern Language Association (MLA).

Due to the increasing popularity of social media, citation guidelines for APA and MLA have been updated to include quotes from Facebook and Twitter. How Do you Cite a Tweet in an Academic Paper? is an article that explains MLA guidelines for Twitter references. Two articles related to citations from Twitter and Facebook are How to Cite Twitter and Facebook, Part I and How to Cite Twitter and Facebook, Part II.
