CRJ 418/518: Research Methods

Research Guide for CRJ 418/518

Write & Cite in American Sociological Association (ASA) Style

When you use someone else's words or ideas in your papers, you should create In-text citations within your paper and References Page (ASA) at the end of the paper. Each In-text citation should lead to a References Page/List citation, and each References Page/List citation should come from an In-text citation.

Use the American Sociological Association Style Guide (5th edition) to correctly cite your sources and format your research paper.  

Use the American Sociological Association's Quick Tips ASA Style Sheet for:

  • In-Text citation templates
  • References Page citation templates

Use the Purdue OWL American Sociological Association (ASA) Formatting and Style Guide templates to put together your ASA In-Text and References Page citations:

The University of Connecticut American Sociological Association guide below has an extensive list of References Page citation templates and examples, including templates and examples for DVDs and online videos.
