Proper way to cite your sources?

    ...in a math research paper that is. I really have no idea. I'm assuming it's different than MLA. Is there a website or something out there that has the guidelines or is it different for each journal?

    Probably different for each set of journals, or similar. Do you have a stylesheet that you could follow?

    Stylesheet? I really don't have much of anything to go by. Fortunately, this isn't a huge deal since I have no real deadline but I would just like to have it look right when I get it to my adviser to look over. Is there no "general" way of doing things?
