What is a Format or Style?

     A format or style manual is a set of rules to be applied to a research paper or professional article in a discipline.
     These rules determine the format: whether footnotes/endnotes or in text citations are used; whether a bibliography or reference list is used; what information is included and in what order, and how the overall paper appears in terms of margins, title pages, subheadings, etc.
