Citation Styles

3 Facts and 3 Questions while waiting for your Profs

  1. There are incredibly many citation styles - and not one single standard that is used across all disciplines or even within one discipline.

  2. Many professors have a preferred style. Search on the website of their chair / department / ..., or ask for it. If there is one: Keep to the specifications of your profs!

  3. If you can choose freely, stick to the decision you made. (You can use APA style, Harvard style, etc. as a guideline).
