Best resources for all academic referencing styles

When you write a research paper, journal article, thesis, or dissertation, you will be required to cite the academic sources in the text and also mention them in the list of references. Based on your association with an educational institution and the academic discipline, you may have to follow a particular style of referencing such as APA, Harvard, MLA, or Chicago Referencing. In this blog post, I have compiled the official as well as the most popular resources available online to learn these styles of referencing.
