format, style & Citation resources

It is good academic practice to properly cite information resources you use in your writing & projects.

Most Kendall professors request research papers to be formatted using the Modern Language Association Style (MLA).

However, from time to time, you may be asked to format your papers using the American Psychological Association Style (APA).
