Make sure you use quotation marks for exact, word-for-word quotations from a source.
Capture all the reference information you might need need from each source while you are conducting your research, rather than waiting until your paper has been written.
Be consistent. No matter what citation style you use, ensure you include the same information in the same order for each citation and reference you make.
Which Style Should I Use?
Choosing which citation style to use for citing your sources depends on which academic field you are writing in.
Sustainability management is considered a social science, and the most popular citation style used in the social sciences is the American Psychological Association style, or APA. Use APA to cite sources in sustainability management, unless your professor explicitly asks you to use another style.
