Style Guides

These style guides are located at the Research Support Desk (Library North 1)


When you write a research paper, you will need to list basic information about the sources from which you obtained information. This basic information is included in a bibliography as a "citation." For a book always cite the author, title, place of publication, publisher, and date. For a periodical article cite the author, title of the article, title of the journal the article appears in, volume and number of the journal, and the pages on which the article appears.

There are several types of manuals for writing research papers. Known as style guides, they include (but are not limited to) MLA, APA and Turabian. Make sure you use the style preferred by your Professor.

Your GSU library has a research guide for citing.


Endnote is a widely used bibliographic reference software program that can help you organize your citations. It is free to Georgia State faculty, staff and students.  Please contact Joel Glogowski with questions about Endnote.
