Microsoft Word 2016 Manual 46 / 62 #161. When research papers are prepared the author often must conform to a particular writing style. The writing style, also called an editorial style, consists of rules and guidelines set forth by a publisher of a research journal to ensure consistency in presentation of research documents. Some of the presentation consistencies that a style enforces are use of punctuation and abbreviations, format of headings and tables, presentation of statistics, and citation of references. The style guidelines differ depending on the discipline the research topic comes from. For example, the APA style originates with the American Psychological Association but is frequently used in the social and behavioral sciences. Another common style is MLA which is sanctioned by the Modern Language Association and is often used in the humanities and business disciplines. The topic of your paper and the audience you write to will determine which style you should use while writing. #162. Word incorporates several writing style guidelines, making it easier for you to generate supplemental references in the required format. The Style list in the Citations & Bibliography group on the References tab includes the most commonly used international styles. When you select the style before creating the bibliography, the citations that appear in the bibliography will be formatted exactly as required by that style. If you want to change the style after creating it, simply position the cursor anywhere within the bibliography, and then select a different style from the list.

Footnotes, endnotes, and bibliographies often contain the same information. Your use of these citation options is determined by the style of paper (MLA, for example) or by the person who oversees your research.
