How do you cite an article from a Scholarly Journal?

   It is important that you give article authors credit for quotations and ideas that you use in your paper.

There are a number of citation styles that will let you do that. Many professors at Great Valley use the format developed by the American Psychological Association but others may choose to use Turabian, Chicago or another style.

You can find information on how to cite your references on some of the sites from GV Weblinks or you can look for more information under Penn State University Libraries Online Reference Shelf  under Writing Resources/Style Manuals

A site that is especially easy to use is the Duke University Citing Sources web site located at http://library.duke.edu/research/citing/.
