ASA magazine citation in ASA format

Authors and editors working in the sociological discipline wanted to distinguish their style from that of both the Chicago Manual style and the American Psychological Association style, and in 1992, the first draft of the American Sociological Association Style Guide was approved. Though the ASA Style Guide still primarily draws from the Chicago Manual of Style (15th ed.), changes still exist between the two. Please refer to the ASA manual (4th ed.) for the most recent information on citing sources. The current 4th edition of the American Sociological Association (ASA) Style Guide was published in 2010. ASA citation guide presented on kinkcitation.com is based on the most current edition. ASA citation style primary used to cite sources like online journal articles, books, chapter of a books, online newspapers and so on.
