  • MLA (Modern Language Association) is typically used for liberal arts- and humanities-based disciplines.
  • CSE (Council of Science Editors) is used in many science-based disciplines and by many scientific journals.
  • CMOS/Turabian (Chicago Manual of Style) is used by most historical and some science journals.
  • APA (American Psychological Association), though originally used only for social and behavioral sciences, has since also been adopted for other disciplines, for example, business and nursing.
