• Better Editing with Any Citation Style

  • Citation styles--while different--share some goals: to help writers make decisions and document their work, and to help readers navigate texts. 

    You can handle any citation style by developing better habits for editing. Use the editing log templates below to get started, and/or make an appointment to work with a Writing Center consultant to get started. 

    You can also use the DU Library's guides on RefWorks to manage all your citations and your research better. 

    Remember: you're working with one style, but we're working with all of them. Our goal is to help you ask and answer questions, use resources, and learn as you go.
