Citation Guides: ASA

Tools for formatting your bibliography and your footnotes


RefWorks is a program that can help you create those things. It is designed to keep track of all the sources you read for your essay, such as books, articles, and even web pages.

You can then use that list of sources to easily create citations and bibliographies. If you are interested to use RefWorks, go to the Refworks Library Guide, view one of the online tutorials in the Help section of the library or read the help pages in RefWorks.

ASA Style

The rules for the ASA style can be found in the American Sociological Association Style Guide. The BU Writing Centre created a summary of the style guide.

The University of Connecticut has created a guide to ASA style.

California State University has also created a guide.

A photocopy of the style guide is avilable on reserve.
