Dennison Rey told CA: "Writing has always held a special place in my heart. My motivation to write comes not from fanciful visions of fame or fortune, but from the inescapable urge to create something out of nothing. In spite of the advances in technology, I work best with paper and pen, only stopping to transcribe to a word processor during the second draft. It's a trick that ensures that at least one solid rewrite occurs before I get down to solid, serious editing—an endeavor that, in itself, comprises eighty percent of the work."

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.
