Writing and Citing in Sociology

The main citation style for Sociology is ASA (American Sociological Association). Before selecting a citation style for your paper, be sure to check what style your professor wants you to use.

Use RefWorks (left) to keep track of your citations and generate a bibliography in any style your professor requires. If you need help using RefWorks, feel free to contact me.
