Cheat Sheets Portal

The University Writing Center (UWC) developed these “cheat sheets” to provide additional resources to students in conjunction with working with UWC consultants. They contain information for some of the most commonly used citation styles used in academic writing today (MLA, APA, and Chicago Style). These cheat sheets use the most current information from the citation styles’ websites, or manuals of style, and refer to the most commonly cited sources and formatting questions. This packet should complement your knowledge about citation styles and should be used as a quick reference when you are citing sources. There is no replacement for learning and retaining the information for future use.

You can find additional information regarding these citation styles at these websites:
