How to Cite GSA Style

GSA Style is the citation standard developed by the Geological Society of America.  Use this citation style when writing research papers in the field of geology.

A GSA citation consists of two parts:

In-text citation: Every time you present information that you have obtained from another source, you should create an in-text citation for it.  This includes both direct quotes from a source and ideas or facts that came from a source.

Reference list: At the end of your paper, you should have a reference list that will include all sources that were cited in your paper.
