Citation and reference styles vary across disciplines. This page describes formats that you should use in sociology papers unless you are told otherwise by the instructor. These guidelines for common sorts of citations are adapted from the American Sociological Association's Style Guide (2010). The Style Guide is available for consultation from Salli Griggs in the department office (31 S. Prospect Street, Room 201).
Please get the American Sociological Association pdf page to learn more about how to prepare bibliographic citations, using CalState LA style guide.
