What is a Citation?
There are two main types of a Citation
- MLA - The (Modern Language Association) style for documentation. MLA styles breif citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work. (Source: Official MLA website)
- APA - The (American Psychological Association) style originated in 1929 when a group of psychologists, anthropologists, and business managers convened and sought to establish a simple set of procedures, or style rules, that would codify the many components of scientific writing to increase the ease of reading comprehension.

Does Everything Have to be Cited?
No, Facts that are well knows are considered common knowledge and don't have to be cited.
Common Knowledge is well... common knowledge, but sense it is common knowledge you don't have to site it.
Example - George Washington was the first president.
