Definitions

A CITATION STYLE dictates how citation information is ordered.  There are a number of citations styles such as MLA, APA or Chicago Turabian.

A CITATION reflects all of the information a person would need to locate a particular source.  For example, basic citation information for a book consists of the author's name, title of the book, name of the publisher, place of publication and a copyright date.

An IN-TEXT CITATION consists of just enough information to correspond to a source's full citation in a Reference or Works Cited list.

A REFERENCE OR WORKS CITED list presents citations for those sources referenced in a particular paper, presentation or other composition.
