In college, professors require either MLA or APA citation styles to reference research sources. If you've become used to one particular style, it can be a challenge to start using another. However, if you've never used any citation format, the whole concept can leave you scratching your head.

Author, F.I., (Year). Article Title. Periodical title, Issue #, Page #s.
Non Periodical (book, report, brochure, manual, audio/visual)
