This style guide has been adapted from the Associated Press (AP) Stylebook and the University of Missouri School of Journalism Copy Desk Reference. AP style rules differ from those of the Modern Language Association (MLA) and other formats used specifically for academic writing and should, thus, not be automatically used for college research papers.
