    The real answer is, whichever one your teacher tells you to use. You will have to ask.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I agree- different institutions have different preferences, so ask first.

    If in doubt, I recommend APA, as it's easiest to read and is most widely used nowadays.
