PLS 2003 Plants that Feed the World: Cite Your Sources

Anatomy of a citation

  • Article or Book Title

  • Journal Name for Article; Publisher Location for Book

  • Volume & Issue for Article; Publisher for Book

  • Pages

There are many citation styles; the citations below follow APA 6th edition.  Confirm what citation style is required by your professor or publisher.
