There are 3 parts to creating a new project.

  2. Citation style: Your choices are MLA, APA, or Chicago/Turabian. If you are not sure, choose MLA then ask your professor. You can change your project to another style.
  3. Citation level: Use the default setting of Advanced. The other levels are not suitable for College assignments and actually make it harder for you. Starter or Juniorre used for elementary and high school-level work.
