There are many types of citation guides used in different types of academic disciplines. MLA and APA are the most common citation styles. Although they may seem similar, there are differences.

Use MLA Style for art, drama, English, history, music, and philosophy. MLA offers specific guidelines on how to cite poems, plays, etc.

Use APA Style for business, communications, education, political science, psychology, and sociology. APA offers specific guidelines on citing works with 20 or more authors.
