Publication Styles

Most faculty and departments require students to submit papers following a specific style manual. The two most common ones used at La Roche are APA and MLA. Below are some resources to help you with those style manuals. Also note that some departments require students to purchase the style manual.

APA

This is the homepage of the APA organization http://www.apastyle.org/ which has tutorials and directions for following this style.

MLA

This is the homepage of the MLA organization http://www.mla.org/ which has information on their style manual.

BOTH STYLES

This site is an excellent one for looking up and learning APA style. It is hosted by Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) and is located at http://owl.english.purdue.edu. Look in the right section under Most popular resources for both APA and MLA help.
