SIDELIGHTS: Theresa Cheung told CA: "I wrote my first book in my late teens and remember how much I loved the process. Nothing came of that book, but I spent the next fifteen years thinking about writing. I worked for a publishing house, taught English in schools, and read everything I could lay my hands on. Having trained as a dancer, I also started to work as a fitness instructor and health consultant. My interest in health eventually led to my first book contract. Since then I haven't looked back. I write about health and psychology mainly, but really enjoy writing about any nonfiction subject, however difficult. My aim is always to be clear, accessible, and easy to read."

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
