MLA, APA, SSSA
UCOLL 300 - Unit IV - Bibliographies
You may wonder why we need different bibliographic styles. Afterall, do you really need more than one way to write a citation?
We have different styles because scholars or academicians in the different branches find different parts of the citation more important than other parts.
Here are just a few examples:
Social Scientists and Scientists are concerned with the name of the author and the date published. Consequently, these two elements appear first in both APA and SSSA style.
Scholars in the Humanities are least concerned about when their resources were published, so the year of publication appears last.
You should mainly be concerned with knowing how to access examples of the style you need to use. In the box below, you will find links to the resources you will need to use for the Unit 3 and Unit 4 Assignment Specific Assessments.
