This guide gives an overview of how to cite Chinese, Japanese and Korean sources using various style manuals, such as Chicago, MLA and APA.

Welcome!

This guide provides an overview of how to cite Chinese, Japanese and Korean sources using various style manuals, such as Chicago, MLA and APA. Most of the citation examples in this guide come from bibliographies, footnotes, or endnotes of published books and journal articles in the recent years. However, as there is no one citation style and there are a variety of ways to cite East Asian sources, the examples in this guide do not represent the only way of doing citations, but provide some models for you to emulate. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at east.asia.library@yale.edu.
