what is the difference is between MLA and APA styles of writing?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am wondering what the difference is between MLA and APA styles of writing.  To help illustrate or support any difference or differences between these two styles of writing, could someone provide a side by side comparison of the two using "sample" or "example" papers?

           Thank you

           George

American Psychological Association and Modern Language Association are writing and formatting styles used in papers, reports, and academic essays. APA is predominately used in the social sciences while MLA is predominately used in the liberal arts and humanities.

Check out this site:

In conclusion MLA is usually for writing while APA is for writing about geographic things which did more depth.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

          Thank you for giving clarity to the similarities and differences between the MLA and APA styles of writing.  After reading over your shared thoughts and resourceful links, I certainly have a much better understanding of these two styles of academic writing with respect to their importance in educational settings.

Hello and Good Morning Joe,

            Thank you for your encouragement.  As you know, I have been brainstorming for quite some time now through the process of gathering ideas, tips, and suggestions as they pertain to the creation of a website and blog.  I have no idea where all of this will eventually lead me, but, I will certainly let you know when I finally get my academic site up rather it be a website or blog.

             Have a good day Joe and thank you once again for your help : - )
