Within the field of art education, articles are often written in APA (American Psychological Association) format. These sites provide an overview of the APA style guide.
We also recommend making use of tools like Zotero (or other citation managers) and resources like the GMU Writing Center to help you with writing, citing, and formatting your papers, especially if you plan to submit manuscripts to journals in this field.
Use Zotero to generate accurate citations and quick bibliographies. Get started with these videos:
Do you need a specialized citation style beyond APA, Chicago, or MLA? Check out Zotero's Style Repository for specialized formats.
The Libraries provide workshops to get you started using Zotero. Check the workshop calendar for times and locations.
Need more citation help? Check out the Purdue Online Writing Lab for assistance with citing APA, MLA and Chicago.
