Resources and strategies that are useful starting points for researching topics in the field of geography.

Citation Styles

Citation styles often vary by discipline. Since Geography is multidisciplinary, the citation style you are asked to use may vary by course or focus. Using a citation management software such as Zotero or ZoteroBib can help you switch more easily between styles; more information is below.

This page also includes resources for two widely used styles: Chicago and APA (American Psychological Association). The Annals of the American Association of Geographers now uses Chicago style B (in-text Author-Date citation and a reference list).
