APA and MLA guidelines

& a list of databases for research

 

Most papers at DELP  are written about language, language use, intercultural communication, language teaching or learning. The tradition is for these  papers to follow the APA style of documentation. Papers about the civilisation of English speaking cultures or other aspects of cultural studies should follow the MLA standards.   

A detailed set of guidelines for the APA style of documentation can be found here.

For further help and information we recommend the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) on APA  at:

http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/

 

For further details on referencing see the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Washington D.C.: American Psychological Association.

 

Handling references:

Word processing programmes usually have their own citation/reference making component, but there are other tools that can be used. Among others:

http://www.bibme.org/

http://www.citefast.com/

https://www.zotero.org/

This is perhaps the most complex of all the referencing programmes. To get acquainted with it the following sites may be useful: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=zotero+tutorial
This is probably the best one to start with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP5AzJHXfIA
And this one explains how to insert it into Word docs.:
