MLA Format — APA Format

Why do you have to follow a specific formatting system?
The use of a specific format is like mathematicians use symbols to transmit information. Each field i.e. English, Physics, Chemistry, etc… designed styles to meet their specific needs. When you study in a particular field, you need to follow their specific format so that your papers are easier to understand and more organized.

For graduate students, scholars and professional writers, the manual is called: MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing
APA stands for American Psychological Association. APA is often called name-and-date style. APA Format is widely used in psychology, business, education, engineering and the social sciences.The latest APA manual is called: Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
