There are many citation style guides. All have one thing in common: to assist the author into organizing all references into a standard format. This is not just for aesthetics, but also allows the author and the reader to easily differentiate one article from the other.
All citation styles use the same information, but not always in exactly the same order. However, the general convention is to arrange the list of references by first author. All citations need to include the following information:
Issue number, page number(s), date
Place of publication
Date of publication
The library maintains a Citation Help guide that provides examples of various citation styles including MLA, APA, along with links to complete style manuals located in the libraries.

How to write and illustrate scientific papers, 2nd ed. / Bjorn Gustavii
RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic management service. RefWorks allows users to create personal citation databases by importing references from text files or online databases. RefWorks features also facilitate manuscript preparation, allowing for automatic formatting of the paper and the bibliography.
RefWorks is similar in function to software products such as EndNote, Reference Manager, and ProCite. It differs in that personal databases are stored on the RefWorks server and can be accessed through the University Library institutional account from wherever the user happens to be. In addition, there is no charge for use to University of Michigan current faculty, staff and students.
