Depends on the style you were asked to cite your papers. If the teacher/lecturer has not given a journal style, then stick to the Harvard style. Should be easy to find on a search engine. Hope it helps? =)
Try a website called easybib.com, it takes websites, and autocites them, it has a library of books and magazines, that you can choose from that are already cited, or it can just show you what you need to fill in, and you find the information and put it in.

Here are PDFs for Style and Citation on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ieee_style Chicago Style is an older style that is present in the literary and publishing worlds: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/717/01/ Harvard Style, that Evo mentioned, is basically what MLA evolved from. It is more wordy, but gives more information and is arguably more elegant. It originated in the field of biology, and has spread to some historical fields and sciences: http://www.ucd.ie/library/students/information_skills/citation/harvard.html If you don't know which to choose, go with MLA. It is the easiest, fastest, and does not require title sheets, tables of contents, etc. Although, some are optional to add back in...
