When writing academia, one have to live up to certain demands about citing and refering to the sources correctly. The demands can vary from field to field - so correctly is a broad term. In text some will refer with name/year in parenthesis, others with numbers in parenthesis or superscripted, and others uses footnotes.
There are many standards to choose from: Vancouver, APA, MLA are just a few. Every field of study has it's preferences - and there is often an organisation behind the specific style.
If you need help for a specific style, you can find many guides and tutorials online, but it is always adviceable to go to the official source. Below you can see which styles are connected to the different fields of study, and you can find links to the University Library reference resources.
