What you’ll learn to do: Insert citations
Certain formatting and style conventions must be followed when writing a research paper or manuscript, especially when identifying sources. Instead of footnotes, in-text citations can be inserted to acknowledge sources of quotations or borrowed ideas rather than plagiarizing information. Word supports three popular styles for citing references: the APA (American Psychological Association), the CMS (Chicago Manual of Style), and the MLA (Modern Language Association).
