Citation in Research Papers

One of the most important elements in college research paper writing is citation. In order to avoid plagiarism, one must cite liberally throughout every research project. Paper Masters takes citation very seriously and is proud of the strict academic standards we adhere to in all our research papers.

When you place an order for a research paper, you are asked to state what citation style you need: MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian or any other style you specify. We guarantee to follow the citation style you need, exactly to the specifications of the corresponding format manual.

Place your research paper order today with experts in citation and writing styles.

Paper Masters uses the following Citation Styles

MLA Handbook

The MLA Handbook is the premier guide for the Modern Language Association's format instructions for term papers written in the area of the Humanities (i.e. English courses, American Studies, etc...).

MLA is the default format that we write all our projects in if a client chooses not to specify exactly what citation style they wish.

Diana Hacker provides excellent examples of MLA formatted research papers here.

APA Style Manual

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the guide for citing research papers and term papers in the area of the social sciences. Course work in psychology, sociology, nursing, medicine etc... typically require APA style.

For a better understanding of how to do APA citations, we suggest that you go view Diana Hacker's APA example here.


Chicago/Turabian Style

Chicago Style, or commonly called Turabian style, is a lesser utilized style of citation yet very easy to use. Denoted mainly by its use of footnotes or endnotes, Chicago style is the common citation style used in History research papers.

See the following example by Diana Hacker of Chicago Style here.
