Resources and tips for Economics research


Economics research typically uses the Chicago Manual of Style Author-Date system to cite sources. This is the style used in American Economic Association (AEA) journals and publications.

What does style have to do with citing sources?

There are quite a few different ways to cite resources in your paper. Citation styles consist of formats and rules established and modified by institutions and associations of scholars in various academic disciplines. 

  • APA (American Psychological Association) used in many social sciences · print copy · online

  • MLA (Modern Language Association) used in literature & other humanities · print copy · online
